Current Projects

All previous Dawn Industry music compilations are available at Bandcamp.

About

Since 1999 the Dawn Industry website (formerly tidalportal.com) has provided a central gateway to personal, commercial and community-driven projects by Australian artist Ivan Bullock.

Over the course of two decades, Dawn Industry has taken many forms. An underground record label and distributor. A promotional site for musical colleagues and collaborators. An independent event organiser, skateboard manufacturer and more.

The current active creations are:

Minorarc (progressive metal & experimental music)
Darkstereo (independent news and reviews about melancholic, underground, experimental and extreme music)
Lapidaus (hand-cut and locally sourced precious gemstones)

Other projects currently under development include Child of the Finder (novel), and a slather of collaborative writing communities which remain private. Previous work included: DEMUS (Dark Electronic Music Underground Society), Dark Stereo (Music store), Enzyme (Melbourne music events), Mystral Tide (Dark classical music) and Dawn Industry Skateboards.

Our allies and collaborators over the years have been numerous, however we are deeply appreciative to the following for their support. Blatant PropagandaInfectious Unease Radio –  2XX –  SleeplabSarcophonyBasticH
