Wellington Jazz Festival: Orchestra Of Spheres Orchestra

Warping spatio-elastoplasticity! Channeling ancient future funk from the IS! Creating spontaneous symmetry in sound!

Orchestra of Spheres take you to higher dimensions through mathematical ratios of rhythm and the chaos patterns of sound. Born from the Frederick Street Sound and Light Exploration Society in 2009, the Spheres have developed a cult-like following around the world through their ecstatic live shows.

For this gig OOS are expanding into OOSO … an orchestra featuring a potpourri of Wellington’s unrecognised musical geniuses.

“Futuristic and unsettlingly primal” Uncut

“Part Sun Ra other-worldiness, part Sublime Frequencies and part ESG ... Orchestra of Spheres blew us away ... I’ve seen them several times since that first gig and the magic only intensifies each time. Dan Snaith, Caribou

“Orchestra of Spheres must be the most out-of-this-world band in music today ... sounds like they come from another planet, where nonstop dance and remarkable melodies are the norm” Brian Shimkovitz – Awesome Tapes from Africa (record label)

Wellington Jazz Festival is on from June 7-11.
