The pdfMAGS questionnaire has been answered by Seb Chan from cyclic defrost.
We are a music magazine based in Sydney, Australia focussing on 'interesting' music - electronic, independent, experimental. We cover new artists and seminal prodyucers that you might not have heard of but that we reckon are pretty special. We also explore the intersection between music and design.
Cyclic Defrost actually started life as a 'expanded flyer' for a weekly club night called Frigid that we ran from 1996 to 2006. For the club we used to do collectable 'sets' of cards (kind of like baseball cards but for cult films, revolutionary leaders, cricketers, all sorts of things). In 1998 we decided to do a magazine as a flyer. From 1998-2000 Cyclic Defrost was a photocopy zine. Then it stopped, only to be resurrected as a proper nationally distributed magazine in 2002. We're been going since then. The club night closed on its 10th anniversary in July 2006.
Music freaks, design nerds, boffins and curious people.
WHAT MAKES DAVID REPORT DIFFERENT?
Cyclic Defrost places a strong emphasis on good writing and long articles. We want depth and to introduce our readers to people they've never heard of. We don't take fashion advertising or ads from mobile phone companies, and we try to be "for the community, by the community".
