Goat JP + Venus Ex Machina

Percussive Japanese minimalism

Hailing from Osaka, Japan, GOAT challenge the typical rock-band set up with their unique, intricate approach to minimalism, prioritizing pure percussive sound over melodic content. They build compositions that explore rhythms and bringing audiences into trance like fatigue. Venus Ex Machina opens the evening with dark and dazzling techno rhythms.

Utilizing harmonics outside standard tonality along with clever muting, GOAT craft complex, driven, forceful compositions which are both urban and tribal at the same time. Their percussion, for example, comprising of bass drum, snare and hi-hat with a muted bass for every string to hit with a punch.

“It’s minimal techno without the electronics, performed with jaw-dropping precision, and this is Goat.” – Japan Times
