SUPPORT LOOMIO!
Loomio is a free and open-source, collaborative decision-making tool that could do wonders for the world, and it is currently being developed by some amazing people in Wellington. They’re running a crowd-funding campaign to raise development funds and have so far raised over $38,000 (with a goal of $100,000 and 22 days to go). Investigate, donate to a worthy cause and change the world for the better!

AUDIO FOUNDATION / I.RYOKO RESIDENCY : MUSIC, ETC!

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

If you have a spare 18 minutes, here’s a new track made while I was in residence at the Audio Foundation. It is a bit of an epic, combining violin, synth, voice and drums with some sounds that were bouncing around in my head at the time - the Auckland motorway, the factory above my studio, the kids playing at the school next door, ocean waves and news of unchecked state terrorism. More to come!

Plus, here’s some photos from the Chinese Lantern festival in Albert Park, Auckland on 16th Feb:

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Unfortunately the i.ryoko residency at the Audio Foundation has now come to an end! What a joyous time, I wish it could have gone on longer! Thanks so much to Zoe, Chris and Jeff at the Audio Foundation, and all who attended the shows and/or had chats and inspired me while I was there.

So begins the recap - starting with these video stills taken from the show in the AF stairwell on Wednesday 19th Feb, 2014 featuring Duncan Bruce, Sally McIntyre (Radio Cegeste), Matt Faisandier (The Convoy) and Thomas Lambert (i.ryoko). Video shot by Zoe Drayton.

WHAT’S GOING ON?

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!
