The Speak Satellite Festival is an event that showcases forward thinking artists and is an initiative of the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music to present new and diverse music in the Illawarra. Over three nights, some of Australia's most progressive young musicians will congregate in Wollongong to share sounds and ideas; to connect the past and possibility.

Head to Wollongong UniBar for an assortment of infectious beats and unmapped melodies, courtesy of Wallace, Godriguez, Minus Marcus, Colourfields, Silver Talon, and YuTrio. DJ Jake Walker will keep the mood buzzing.

Wallace: Future soul singer and songwriter Wallace Gollan's music is an exciting mosaic combination of blues, hip-hop and soul. She possesses a sound others have labelled in the vein of Erykah Badu, Little Dragon or Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan. What sets her apart is her truly unique voice and immense charisma. Wallace applies her multi-award winning jazz trained licks and intonation to create a rich layer of distinct harmonies causing heads to turn. Wallace is the type of artist that forces everyone in ear and eye shot to stop an pay
attention.

Godriguez: first stepped onto the international hip-hop scene as the creative force behind Sampa The Great's breakthrough release & 'The Great Mixtape'. His unique blend of jazz and avant-garde samples with a distinctly raw production aesthetic push the boundaries of improvised music within a framework of hip hop, soul and psychedelica. Since then Godriguez has continued to grow in stature as a solo artist and producer working on remixes for Polographia and Winston Surfshirt and playing solo sets in support of Hiatus Kaiyote at Somerset House in London, Black Milk and Koi Child.

Minus Marcus: is a new 4-piece- sonic-juggernaut; journeying through rock, ambient, improvised and electronic music styles. Throughout their dynamic live sets, MM flow freely between the shifting and washy textures of ambient music; the driving, rhythmic pulse of house and techno; and live improvised interactions. Inspired by the music of electronic producers and beat makers of today, MM build and swell through layers of samples and live/improvised sounds over a 4-to- the floor beat. Minus Marcus is computer music, made by live humans.

Colourfields: is a new astral child wildly assembled in deep space, a silvery capsule of songs, loops, skips and sounds plunged dramatically to earth and sung out by warm fleshy bodies

Silver Talon: are a group of humans and electronic apparatus (controlled by humans) playing through-
composed original compositions exploring electronic and acoustic worlds via weaving and morphing loops.

YuTrio: Melding elements of Improvised music and Indie-Rock, the band performs original music which they recorded and released earlier this year. Fans of Post-Rock groups such as Frames and Jaga Jazzist will find similarities in Yutrio's music with the band also utilising its members' considerable improvisatory talents.
