About The Convoy

The Convoy ( MEL ) conducts vast luminous orchestral atmospheres by way of real-time processing of electric guitar and electro-acoustic percussives via ¼” tape.

Atmospheres immerse and envelop via abstracted, organic and mesmeric audio visual emissions. Here exists a static surface tension, perpetually and intimately comforting, only to be inevitably obliterated by sheer and momentous walls of noise.

Formed in Wellington NZ by Matt Faisandier, who initially performed solo processed electric guitar under the pseudonym, the project was relocated to Melbourne in 2008.

This proved to be the catalyst for a series of transformations that heralded new and invigorating modes of sound production.

After a second solo studio album ‘ 8 ’ ( 2014 ) , Erin K Taylor was invited into collaboration to further fulfill the needs of a intricate and continuously expanding sound and performance palette, introducing dynamic lighting systems, water gamelon, percussives & ¼” tape.

“The Convoy prefigure a post-apocalyptic world where sound takes religious significance. With soundscape as the surviving creative outlet in an industrial wasteland - harnessed as a form of meditation for the creators and a trance inducing prescription for a decimated populace. This is sound as utilitarianism. Instruments fashioned as though the three Rs aren’t a philosophy but a necessity. This is noise without ego or pretension. Like Brutalist Architecture celebrates the capabilities of concrete, The Convoy revel in the possibilities of industrial cast-offs normally relegated to the side of a highway”


“As The Convoy took the stage, tape machines hissed and warbled as sonic atmosphere began taking form. Tides of distant, thunderous drum swelled and receded while ominous guitar ambience gave voice to a world awakening. Soundscapes were endowed with a kind of sentience that spoke themes of cyclic evolution and regeneration – varied waves of intensity growing exponentially, each time returning as if a new incarnation, born from the eroded memory of sections before”
