According to Scott Porter
– who presents 0x0’s Viper Room debut
on Thursday, 19 April – the band “is an art collective featuring Thomas Dekker that incorporates music, fashion, video art and performance”.
At the gig, 0x0
will perform tracks from their debut album, Equals Zero
, which is described as “a dark synth-ridden blend of rock, techno and rhythmic orchestral written and produced solely by the collective”.
, “[We] intend to challenge the current conventions of pop while keeping [our] personal identities cloaked in mystery. If there was a party in the world of Blade Runner
, the Replicants would surely be dancing to [our] music.”
Prior to 0x0 – which Wetpaint says is
“in a word, amazing” – Dekker released a solo album, Psyanotic
, in 2008 – described by the artist
as “Electrofolk - songs that have a traditional melodic and chord structure, often telling stories, but technically supported by electronica. I guess I'm trying to harness nature and technology in a symbiotic way."
As well as being a musician, Thomas Dekker
, 24, is also a successful actor, having appeared in numerous TV shows and films. He played Nick in the science-fiction sitcom Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show
(1997–2000) and, with Lena Headey, in the science-fiction drama Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
(2008–9), as John Connor – both spin-offs from movies. He also played Zach in the first series of the science-fiction drama Heroes
(2006) and is currently starring as Adam Conant in the supernatural drama The Secret Circle
Dekker’s film career includes the 2010 reimagining of A Nightmare on Elm Street
and playing the title role, Smith, in Kaboom
0x0 featuring Thomas Dekker will be appearing at The Viper Room
on Thursday, 19 April 2012. Doors will open at 7.30 p.m., and tickets are on sale
at $12 in advance or $15 on the door.
