Genrefonix is a Perth based arts/music collective that combines cutting-edge sound engineering and filmmaking techniques to create unique live events. Employing a strong gothic style the creative team often focus on bringing real local histories to life through innovative and surprising mixed media experiences, with the performance venue integrated into the work.
Genrefonix employs popular tropes from ‘genre’ filmmaking to reinvigorate local history for new audiences. A range of musicians and visual artists collaborate on original artworks such as films and soundscapes, as well as augmenting public domain properties through a process of ‘re-editing’ and ‘re-composing’. Artists include WAAPA trained jazz improvisers and members of local rockers Oats Supply, Day of the Dead and many more.
