A Mixtape by Martin King

As part of Melbourne’s White Night, a crew from The Lifted Brow and the Emerging Writers’ Festival got together to make a magazine overnight. The final product, Red Eye in name and nature, is a result of a wild, collaborative and exhausting twelve hours. Luckily, the team had DJ Martin King on hand for this invigorating set, recorded live on the night.

Martin King’s work exists primarily in the platform of dance and pop music. As a member of the groups The Harpoons and Oscar + Martin, King has toured Australia extensively on headline shows, as well as supporting local and international acts. 2013/14 saw King refine his solo recorded material and a live show, as well as conducting explorations into the field of video art, score and installation based work. In 2014 King has turned his focus towards themes of digital and human systems of information and perception, informing the writing of an exegesis as part of the RMIT Fine Art Honours degree, as well as exhibiting installation based works at SEVENTH Gallery (September 2014), First Site Gallery and the RMIT Fine Art Grad Show (November 2014).
