Australian photographer and Tokyo resident Nicholas Dombrovskis presents—in conjunction with lens maker Sigma—an exhibition of photography exploring how life and landscapes endure, with some works displayed on a 4K monitor, and one spectacular 1.2m print. The images range in subject from humpback whales disappearing off Colombia’s Pacific coast to a Martian-like saltpan in Namibia; from the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina to a curling leaf suspended between space and sunlight.

Fiercesounds 6th Anniversary

Born out of London’s underground techno scene, Fiercesounds celebrates its sixth anniversary with top female spinner DJ Clodagh, who was promoted from bedroom DJ to the big time when she was invited to warm up for Carl Cox on his 2005 tour of France. “Ireland’s techno princess” will be making a special mix CD to be given out to the first 50 punters. To complement the hot and heavy techno in the main room all night, the lounge area offers up DJs and live artists playing deep house, electronica, and more. Fiercesound’s Dreams of Widnes and another live artist Prefect will be celebrating debut releases on Kingbeat records.

We’re usually a bit suspicious of all-star units, but this one is just too good to belittle. Larry Coryell, one of the most tasteful guitarists on the planet, is joined by mercurial organist Joey DeFrancesco, trumpeter Wallace Roney and tenor saxman Rick Margitza, all backed by the uberfunk rhythm section of Daryl Jones and Omar Hakim. Jazz-fusion fans—it really doesn’t get any better than this.
