The Architects of Sound (AUS)
Architects of Sound
We do not make music, we are not musicians, we are Architects of Sound.
Brisbane’s most influential avant-garde, electronic music trio are about to kick-off their biggest and most explosive sonic experience yet – live and in three whole dimensions!
Intense buzz has been circulating in online forums and now the rumours can be confirmed. Their official debut album ‘The Holy Trinity’ is complete and The Architects of Sound want to share their immaculately conceived ‘genius’ in this electronic trash extravaganza, the most iconic live concert of all time.
“From the moment they entered the stage, the three snapped into character and stayed there as unyieldingly as Justin Timberlake’s hair in his NSYNC days.” (Planet Arts Melbourne)
