ALL SEEING HAND / SETH FRIGHTENING NZ TOUR 2014

Monday, June 16th, 2014

“The All Seeing Hand are collaborators in conversion. Sound shapes minds, and the amalgam of turntables, throat singing and drums holds potent persuasive powers. The turntables provide a dense weaved fabric of sounds and create a subliminal future from the carcasses of redundant songs. The throat inhales your spent breath and mumbled words then exhales harmonic rich vocals; while you struggle to hear the language your synapses are firing new paths. The drums resonate with your heart, then beat it irregular; while your chest collapses with pounding toms, your brain pulsates with frantic snares.

The music of Seth Frightening is complex and varied but also focused and direct to the point of rawness. His music tells stories with shifting, clouded characters and evasive narrative, speaking as much to our own lives as to the one he himself leads. This ability to connect, to draw listeners out of their ease and guardedness, speaks as much about the depth and richness of his character as it does about his soaring and richly textured voice.”

The annual 48 Hour Film Festival starts tonight. Hopefully we’ll get ours in on time this time! To get us in the mood, here’s a funny old one by Taika Waititi (Director of Boy, Eagle Vs Shark, etc):

I.RYOKO IN RESIDENCE AT THE AUDIO FOUNDATION

VIOLIN WAVE by i.ryoko

Today I (Thomas Lambert, a.k.a I.RYOKO) began my residency at the Audio Foundation in Auckland. This is the first time the residency has been offered and I feel very lucky to be here. Over the next three weeks I will be working from the AF studio in Myers Park with the aim of producing an ‘adventurous and well realised new sound work’, along with an exhibition of photography. I will also be having a public event or three, so if you’re in Auckland please stay tuned for more info! Details will be available here or through the usual Audio Foundation outlets.


VALENTINES DAY MONSTER MASH IN WELLINGTON

Rumours abound that the All Seeing Hand and Erica Sklenars will display the full visual extravaganza that rain denied them at CALH. What better way to spend a romantic evening?!


PYRAMID CLUB OPENING IN WELLINGTON THIS WEEKEND!

Pyramid Club

While Wellington is on the verge of losing two of its prime music venues (Puppies and Mighty Mighty) it is about to gain one which will fill the gaping void left after the closure of the Frederick Street Sound and Light Exploration Society in 2012. ‘Freds’ was not just a venue but the hub of an enthusiastic arts community until its untimely demise as the result of building safety regulations under threat of earthquakes. Now, at long last, the legendary Dan Beban brings us the next incarnation: Pyramid Club! Opening this weekend… Party on!

ALL SEEING HAND/ SETH FRIGHTENING TOUR: DAYS 11/12

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

We’re off up North again this weekend (ALL SEEING HAND ALBUM RELEASE TOUR > Hamilton & Auckland!!) so I thought I better put up some pics from our last roadtrip in May this year…


Sean in Putaruru


All Seeing Hand at Golden Dawn


This is Kerosene Creek, a thermal stream & hot pools 35km south of Rotorua. We had a joyous time singing under the waterfalls and decorating Jonny’s head with stones – later I found out that a friend got really, really sick after dunking her head in this creek… luck of the draw I guess! Caution advised.
