Composition: Ben Cromack 3 turntables, supported by Nina Buchanan (live)


Composition takes you closer to the method in which a performance is made. From track selection to on the fly edits, the artists will demonstrate how they create syncopated rhythms from completely unrelated music. A new experience from The Substation and Stable Music, which take you inside live electronic composition.

Ben Cromack’s musical influence stems from the Hip-Hop classics we all grew up with like Run DMC, Public Enemy & E.P.M.D right through to the other side of the scale, Punk & Metal. Listening to the likes of Sepultura and Dead Kennedy’s paved the way for his ears to handle the heavy frequency of 90’s techno. His precise mixing and layering of tracks on 3 decks is a marvel to watch and has left many a punter and fellow DJ awestruck.

Renowned for her powerful live performances, Nina Buchanan ’s elemental, intuitive approach to club music wades through lush melodic synth lines, thumping rhythms and atmospheric soundscapes. She has released two EPs, Sunk and Highly Emotional, with a debut album in the works. Buchanan’s composition work includes commissions for MONA FOMA, Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ, ACCA, ABC Arts, and Campbelltown Arts Centre.
