"Sean Baxter is a drummer and percussionist based in Melbourne.

Baxter has explored the possibilities of percussion as both a solo artist and as a part of avant-garde trio Pateras/Baxter/Brown. His practice applies both extended techniques to the traditional drumkit, as well as expanding the sonic palette of the percussion tradition through an arsenal of metallic junk and percussive detritus.

He also performs regularly with the brutal, free-jazz/grindcore quartet, Embers, and in frequent ad hoc collaborative and solo incarnations. Baxter was also a founding member of pioneering Melbourne experimental groups bucketrider, Lazy and Western Grey.

Baxter has performed alongside notable experimental music practitioners such as Robin Fox, Kusum Normoyle, Kim Myhr, Lloyd Honeybrook, KK Null, Paul Grabowsky, Han Bennink, Peter Brotzmann, John Wiese, Valerio Tricoli, Lucas Abela, Robbie Avenaim, Carolyn Connors and Marco Fusinato.

He is the artistic director of the Make It Up Club, Australia's longest-running weekly concert series dedicated to avant-garde improvised music."

"Dr David Michael Brown (b. 1956, Melbourne, Aust.) has been involved in the Melbourne avant-garde, art rock/punk rock scene since the mid-seventies with such groups as "False Start", "Signals" and "Dumb and the Ugly". The first two of these groups began from associations made around the time he was completing a diploma of fine arts in the mid-1970s.

Subsequent projects include punk jazz band "bucketrider", "lazy" an improvising duo with percussionist Sean Baxter, improv/sound art group "Western Grey" with Baxter and Philip Samartzis, psychedelic electronic group "Terminal Hz" with KK Null from Japan, prepared improvisational group "Pateras/Baxter/Brown, electric free jazz group "Embers", the duo "culture of un" with Sydney pianist Chris Abrahams, the prepared instrument duo "Hakea" with saxophonist Rosalind Hall, the duo "Helium Clench" with Melbourne guitarist and microtonal instrument builder Tim Catlin as well as more occasional groups "The Greg Kingston Big Band" and "The Crowded Foxhole", the latter with son Louis Peake. The focus of the solo project "candlesnuffer" has increasingly centred on the development of composing techniques which meld opposing streams like conventional electro-acoustic methods with noise and rock and also the development of a vocabulary of tiny acoustic sounds enlarged outside their normal context for performance and composition.

In all these projects Brown has continued to develop a vocabulary that runs the gamut from rock bassist through experimental guitarist to sound artist. In addition, his activities as a solo improviser and composer have been consolidated by a return to education, with the aim to research the relationship between digital recording technology and improvisatory techniques, concluding in an M.A. completed at RMIT in 2001. Following this Brown undertook a PhD research project at RMIT University investigating the use and benefits of electroacoustique compositions and field recordings within a hospital Emergency Department. This doctorate was completed in late 2012 and a book providing an overview of the project was subsequently published in 2013.

David Brown has performed regularly at the What Is Music? Festival since 1996, the Melbourne and Wangaratta Jazz festivals, the Articulating Space festival, the Nownow Festival in Sydney, Liquid Architecture Festival plus featured performances at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art 2002, the Podewil Centre in Berlin in 2003 and extensive tours of numerous European cities with Pateras/Baxter/Brown in October 2004, November 2006 and May 2007. In October/November 2008 Pateras/Baxter/Brown again toured Europe, this time performances in France and Switzerland were undertaken with their compatriots 'The Necks.' In February 2011 Terminal Hz toured Europe.

In 2005, 2006 and 2008 respectively Brown made contributions to the soundtracks of the motion pictures 'Wolf Creek', 'Rogue' and 'The Square' composed by Franc Tetaz. Brown has also contributed performances and live accompaniment to the soundtrack 'Au Revalateur', composed by Philip Brophy."

"Fascinating heap and progressive tangle of percussive tones by one of the best improvised trios of the current international scene, captured live during a dense concert in the black building and rock of the Factory. Percussive Impro of high outfit!"-Cave12 (via Google Translate
