Event description

Description

(dys/)utopian noise collective The Convoy will be joined by New Zealand label mate and drone wizard I.Ryoko for two rare performances in October.

Paving new paths into the landscape of experimental sound, the artists are united by their approach toward creating enveloping sonic structures which accumulate, regenerate and compound; shared and felt through visceral bodily experiences.

While their respective methods of sound production make for markedly different sound worlds - one activated by kinetic movement, the other grounded in electronic production - both approaches are energized by deep listening, an affinity for dense subsonic resonance and a will to communicate the ineffable.





I.RYOKO ( NZ ) explores cathartic, ecstatic & transcendental sound. Intuitive compositions of synthesiser, drum machine and voice seek to envelop the listener with immense, evolving drones and kaleidoscopic layers of rhythm and melody. The result is often lush and meditative, at times intense or cataclysmic.

The project is that of Thomas Lambert, a New Zealand-based artist with a background in composition, audio engineering, film and theatre sound. As a member of several musical projects over the past decade - including I.Ryoko & Seth Frightening - he has supported artists the likes of Low, The Books, Jonsi, Grizzly Bear, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, Eric Copeland, Ilios and Hildur Gudnadottir.

THE CONVOY ( MEL ) conducts vast luminous orchestral atmospheres by way of real-time processing of electric guitar and electro-acoustic percussives via ¼” tape.


Atmospheres immerse and envelop via abstracted, organic and mesmeric audio visual emissions. Here exists a static surface tension, perpetually and intimately comforting, only to be inevitably obliterated by sheer and momentous walls of noise.

DOWSER ( MEL )

Creating a raw and thunderous doom soundscape, Dowser combine a monstrous rhythm
section and wailing highs to punish your ears. Sustain, fuzz, and boom carry the listener through
lengthy movements between harmonising and a tonal sonic voids. A loud, weird, dark three
piece. Bring ear plugs. (Danny Smith: Bass. Adam Bennett: Drums. Sorcha Wilcox: Guitar.)
