Forenzics are playing two 45
minute sets at Colbourne Ave, 37-47 St Johns Road, in Glebe, Thursday 25th July,
8-10pm. It's a quiet, relaxed and great sounding room, so we'll be making the most
of that in our approach, and stretching our improvising legs over the two sets.
Our lineup will consist of Matthew Syres on Guitar, Dirk Kruithof on Bass/Guitar,
Joe Cummins on Trumpet and Alex Slater on Drums. The venue is BYO, has tea and coffee,
and we're giving away CD's to the first 10 payers. Come along! Check out the Facebook
page here for updates.
Matt - Forenzics
|"The mood then turned
to a dark and sinister atmosphere as the smoke machines got going and FORENZICS
came on. They appeared entirely improvised and there was great chemistry between
the four players as each instinctively knew where the music was going. The build-ups
were slow with the gradual incorporation of more elements to the minimalist soundscape.
The addition of the trumpet transported you to the back room of some jazz bar."
— Justin Friedman, Sludge
urban, dystopian sounds of electricity flow through the sounds, but they are recorded
with a widescreen clarity that allows every guitar nuance, every effect groan, every
swish of static, its own clear place in the mix...."

|"Forenzics have been
around since 2005 but I hadn’t heard them play. With Matthew Syres on guitar
and way too many effects pedals, Dirk Kruithof on lead guitar, Joe Cummins on trumpet
and Kaos pad and Alex Slater on drums they play loose yet utterly cohesive improv
inflected with jazz, rock, drone and psychedelia. Joe Cummin’s trumpet loops
and soaring melodies are a particular highlight creating a smoky, sensual atmosphere
and the rhythmic interplay, pushing against the metre with loping rubatos, gives
the sound an intriguing elasticity. It occurred to me that music is best when it
picks you up and takes you somewhere you didn’t know you wanted to go, and
Forenzics did just that."
