BATTERIE is the brainchild of Jared Underwood; award winning musician, composer, percussionist, experimentalist and graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and AFTRS (Australian Film Radio and Television School). BATTERIE combines improvised live drums, sampling, looping, and electronics that interact with visual projections in a unique live solo show that pushes the boundaries of what a solo performer can do. Some highlights have been supporting New York art rock band Gang Gang Dance at the Sydney Opera House, opening for cult Japanese group CIBO MATTO, performing at AR BAR at The Museum Of Contemporary Art and playing BEAMS festival Chippendale. Over the last few years BATTERIE has been busily composing music for indie games including : OTTTD, One More Dash, PLATO, One More Jump, Thumb Drift and One More Line which was an indie success downloaded more than 10 Million times. His game soundtracks are quite popular amongst gamers with thousands of plays on Soundcloud, YouTube and more than 125,000 hits on the official BATTERIE website. The music is available on Apple music, Spotify, BandCamp and more.
