Equally influenced by the complex pop melodies of Joni Mitchell as he is by the cut-n-paste aesthetic of Cornelius or The Books, Setec (the moniker of Sydney-based solo artist Joshua Gibbs) is a musical attempt to blend the organic with the electronic; to meld the fleeting flickers of the past with nostalgia for a future that is yet to pass.

On his full-length debut, Brittle As Bones, Setec utilises found-sound percussion alongside looped acoustic instruments, fading voice samples and wailing, cascading layers of his own voice to create a unique, headphone-focused sonic universe.

His music has been released to critical acclaim receiving positive attention from Triple J, FBi radio and other community stations around the country, as well as being featured in promotional videos for Triple J’s One Night Stand on ABC.

The highly anticipated follow-up to Brittle As Bones will be released via Feral Media in 2017.
