Bio

LIFE BENEATH THE VENEER

Abelard is an emerging electronic producer and artist from Melbourne. His ‘glitterwave’ sound is a tightly-woven nostalgia-free collision of decadent 80’s pop, vaporwave, italo disco, and chillwave. Noisey (Music by Vice Magazine) described his work as the “2015s version of the 90s.”

‘Teen Optimism’ led to successful shows and collaborations in Tokyo and the US, and recent features across online publications.

‘Meta Valley’ explores a bitter-sweet portrait of fractured home life, discordant and exclusive nightlife, destructive homogenous corporate culture, and belonging.

'I'm OK For Now" re-contextualises living in the pre-digital world for a post-digital sound. It speaks of across mobile communication platforms, living and breathing information flow.

Woah, I'm six again and my favourite 90s educational program is about to start! Colourful geometric shapes are flying at me as I anticipate half an hour of ruling at counting. How did you do that?
