performance art / experimental music
Re-purposing children‚Äôs electronic toys and assuming toy-like characters, Toydeath create live music with sounds coerced solely from tortured electronic toys and accompanied by hilarious costumed antics. Using circuit-bending techniques, each instrument is a hand-crafted modified toy capable of extraordinary sonic possibilities. Audiences are exposed to a barrage of hyperactive hootenanny as Toydeath unleash the contents of a toy box six year olds would kill for. Formed in 1995, this Sydney-based trio have appeared at major Australian music festivals including the Big Day Out, Field Day and The Great Escape, and performed in Japan, China, South Korea, Austria, Italy, Portugal, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
