PARASITIC FANTASY BAND
(live multi-projector 16mm manipulations and live sonic accompaniment)
(performing a live score to a short film by Paul Clipson)
The Parasitic Fantasy Band are an expanded cinemaesque live 16mm/8mm film/sound performance duo from New Zealand, deep in the south Pacific ocean. Between Eve Gordon, Sam Hamilton, multiple film projectors, flexible mirrors, objects, organic materials, gongs and electronics emerges an ecstatic engagement of the senses, the space around you and the inhabitants sharing that space with you with the possibility of stepping into a new ephemeral territory of existence and explorative perception, exotically alien and fun yet fundamentally familiar.
smgsap presents an even blend of electronic and analogue textures, using a variety of sources from field recordings, drones, musical and non-musical sounds as well as manipulated live audio and instruments. With a hand and ear in a variety of artistic genres, shea M gauer and scott A peterson spend their minimal free time searching, capturing, processing, manipulating, producing, engineering, and designing sounds for all applications.
Métal Rouge was formed in 2006 by Helga Fassonaki and Andrew Scott in Auckland, New Zealand with no aim but to open themselves to the spontaneous psych tonalism running through the underbelly of popular music like a vein of pure lightning. Birthed from the rich history of New Zealand underground music they began to mould a sound comprised equally of the forward motion of ecstatic jazz and the drugged stasis of NYC loft minimalism circa ’66. Using electric guitar, voice and amplified santur as their primary instruments, they forged a new vocabulary of spiritual drone dub. Relocating to Los Angeles late 2006, they toured the states, adding lap steel and pedal steel to their arsenal. Related projects include Yek Koo (Helga solo), Nest (Andrew & Nigel Wright), Golden krone (Andrew & Rohan Evans) and Huzun (Andrew & Tim Coster). Métal Rouge have releases on Root Strata, Not Not Fun, Stunned and their own Seymour Records imprint. Their new LP ‘Republican Trees’ is forthcoming on Digitalis.
