Biography

Three Month Sunset - Biography

Locked away in his bedroom, Melbourne solo musician Gabe Lewis has spent many hours crafting his slow-burning and cathartic music – whittling away at ideas and transforming them into elegant and triumphant chaos.

Three Month Sunset is the product of this devotion, and the solo project is beginning to draw attention from across the world in recognition of its beauty and innovation. In July 2007, the music of Three Month Sunset was selected as one of six finalists in Sigur Rós' 2007 Artist-in-Residence competition. Chosen from across the world, this marked a significant step in Lewis' career, and recognised the potential in his quietly kept music.

The Artist-In-Residence competition was run to coincide with the launch of a new book - In a Frozen Sea - a year with Sigur Rós, and all six finalists will have their music showcased to the world on the Artist-In-Residence website in July, before judging be a panel of judges, including the members of Sigur Rós..

However, this is not the first time that Lewis' music has been recognised internationally for its beauty and innovation. His small-run first release Interpretations of Air has been sampled by Russian techno artists, ordered by underground music fans in the USA, UK, France, Italy and Germany, and featured on compilations within Australia and New Zealand. It is also rumoured to have caught the attention of the lads from BRMC when they were passed a copy last time they were in the country (although everyone was drunk at the time, and so no one remembers all the details).

A classically trained violinist, Lewis writes his music using only a single stereo guitar, and around 5 amplifiers (more when the mood takes him). The swooning, cascading sheets of guitar recall mid-period Windy Carl filtered through the most realised aspects of English shoegaze, with new wave a constant influence.

Locally, Three Month Sunset has appeared onstage alongside bands such as the Morning After Girls and Because of Ghosts, and is a regular guest for bands such as Aleks and the Ramps, Function Ensemble and Laura. He can be heard on RRR in Melbourne, FBi in Sydney and online.

I’d wager that this is one of the best sounds to float out of the ever-broadening Australian ‘instrumental’ genre all year.
Andrew Ramage, Beat, of Interpretations of Air

Wonderfully compelling...as the title suggests ambient as heaven, a snapshot of the greatest trip of your life, be it real or imagined.
