ALSO IN WELLINGTON THIS WEEKEND! (Friday night)
“The Albemarle is one of Wellington’s classic historic buildings… it was once was an anarchist hang out, then a brothel, now soon to be demolished. It’s an amazing space and a friend has kindly gifted us the use of the building for a one-off gig/art happening .. we’re going to fill the place with installations, performances, projections and sound! It’s also the Orchestra of Spheres leaving party before the band set sail to the US and Iceland next week, and they’re joined by a whole heap of good friends for the night.” Be sure to RSVP if you want to attend!

“Mixed by Milky Joe for The Society for the Promotion of A Fantastic Way of Life… Headphone listening recommended… With only a couple of exceptions this is a Wellington-centric mix, and represents a very small sample of the fantastic, extra-ordinary, implausible, astonishing, surprising, improbable, unlikely, incredible, unbelievable, shocking and Microsoft Word Synonym function worthy music being made here in Wellington, Aotearoa.”

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!
