Iconic synthesist Gavin Rayna Russom is set to visit Australia this March, playing an exclusive show at the Seymour Centre for Mardi Gras 2019.

Having spent close to two decades as one of the most prominent musicians in The DFA team, Gavin Rayna Russom is arguably best known for her work as the lead synthesist for New York City icons LCD Soundystem.

However, there’s plenty more to her resumé than just LCD, having released albums with different artists and under different names, including Black Leotard Front, Black Meteoric Star and The Crystal Ark.

Known to many as The Wizard due to her technical prowess with her instrument, Russom has built custom synthesisers for some of the biggest names in the business, including James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), Tim Goldsworthy (UNKLE, The Loving Hand) and Bjorn Copeland (Black Dice).

Now, with Mardi Gras 2019 kicking off next month, Gavin Rayna Russom is set to play an exclusive show at Chippendale’s Seymour Centre.

Taking place on Friday, March 1, this one-off event is set to be a very unique experience for fans of music.

Between pushing the limitations and possibilities of analogue synth electronic production, and attempting to find authenticity in a word of synthesised sounds, Russom’s performance is undoubtedly on track to be a highlight of 2019’s live calendar.

It all kicks off on March 1 at the Seymour Centre’s Everest Theatre. For tickets and more info, be sure to head over the Seymour Centre’s website.
