Renowned for their distinctive signature works and multi-disciplinary collaborations, Aria-nominated Topology have revisited their “house concert” beginnings with the release of ‘Tortured Remixes’, a new full-length 'mixtape’ album.

Celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, the 1990s saw Brisbane come to know Topology through both their original compositions as well as their adventurous re-imaginings of popular music. Topology’s energetic performances broke down music genre boundaries, injecting elements of chamber music, pop, jazz, electronica, orchestral and progressive rock into their distinctive sound. Performing in small bars, backyards and lounge rooms, the quintet flourished in the then underground new music scene.

Thirteen album releases, countless new works and two decades worth of national and international touring later, including their recent 2017 season at the Lincoln Center in New York City with Dead Puppet Society (see some NYC snaps here), Topology continue to operate at the forefront of contemporary Australian musicality.

‘Tortured Remixes’ sees popular melodies filtered through the creative minds of Topology’s composers - John Babbage, Robert Davidson and Bernard Hoey. The result: familiar tunes stretched, bent, scrambled and “tortured” (almost) beyond recognition, then reassembled into adventurous new works where iconic bass lines inspire complex arrangements, well-known solos are expanded into full-length chamber pieces, and more.

Featuring tortured reconstructions of The Saints, MC Hammer, The Beatles, Stevie Wright, Beyoncé, Cold Chisel and many more, ‘Tortured Remixes’ is a mixtape celebrating the 60’s to the present like you’ve never heard them before.

Off the back of their 2014 ARIA Award Nomination for Best Classical Album & 2015 APRA Art Music Award for Excellence in Music Education, Topology are perhaps best renowned for their prolific collaborations. Recently these include two shows with The Kransky Sisters, a new concert (praised by Elvis Costello) with UK’s Brodsky Quartet, a radical reworking of tap dance with Bill Simpson and drummer Grant Collins (Three), cross-cultural mixtures of Indian and Australian indigenous music including Ubiet, Terry Riley, William Barton and Dheeraj Shrestha, a Thursday Island unifying of Torres Strait cultures through choral music with Christine Anu, and community work with diverse regional arts organisations.

But for now its to their own ‘Tortured Remixes’ that all ears turn. Catch Topology transforming pop anthems into poignant, lush orchestrations Friday Oct 20 @ Byron Theatre, Byron Bay Community Centre.
