In 2001, on a rainy November Sunday afternoon, a performance took place on Brisbane Powerhouse’s Turbine Platform . It was a crowded affair, some 600 people turning out for DJ Olive Meets I/O3, a performance which has since been released as ‘Powerhouse Sessions’ (EDRM400). Whilst the actual shape of the series was yet to take form, this event was the genesis for a series of events curated by Lawrence English.

Titled Fabrique, the series ran for eight years (making it the longest running series of its type in Australia) and produced 40 events each of which celebrated the full breadth of electronic and avant musics. Fabrique presented artists from countries including Japan, Spain, Slovenia, USA, UK, Belgium, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Denmark, New Zealand and Australia amongst others.

The event prided itself on creating networks between Australian and international artists all of whom shared an interest in testing for the very edges of contemporary sound in performance.
