In 2011 two visual artists, Marty Wong and Tolmie MacRae met when their respective bands

Meniscus and Mish performed at The Annandale Hotel. Their mutual interest in the visuals arts,

performance and live music (and Marty owning a video projector) was the start of an ongoing

collaboration that in 2013 officially became Tame the Pixels.

 

Tame the Pixels were founded on the understanding that a collective mind is greater than its

individual parts. We’re open to working with fellow artists to incorporate more artistic forms into

the collective, often calling on friends as collaborators when needed to achieve our creative goals.

 

Fellow collaborators have included Dennis Watkins (Sydney Opera House / newtheatricals),

Paul Mac (Musician/Producer), Brendan Maclean (Musician), Matt Format (Performer),

House of Mince (Club Promoters), Velvet Hammer (Club Promoters) & Tortuga Studios

(In the Night Garden).
