Gig Information


Droszkhi - a bastard spelling of the Russian дрожки and Polish dorożka meaning a low riding horse-drawn taxi carriage - is the solo music project of New Zealand artist and musician Torben Tilly. Following in the spirit of his previous electronic duo Minit (together with Jasmine Guffond) and more recent sonic explorations with the mercurial group Full Fucking Moon (Bek Coogan, Andy Wright, Steve Heather), Droszkhi pulls into its sphere layer upon spectral layer of electronics, custom synths, percussion & other mixed-media to produce a psychedelic sound world of mind-expanding elliptical loops, discombobulated techno-rhythms, electric pulses, and cosmic drones.

While the music is predominantly drone-based, it takes a sculptural approach... by attempting to spatialize and prise open sounds in a way that enable other sonic spaces inbetween to emerge, resulting in what I would hope is a kind of spectral or psychedelic effect/experience.
- Torben Tilly (Under The Radar, July 2013)

Ian-John studied with composer and instrument maker Phil Dadson at Auckland University in 2001. He has participated in improvisation events in Auckland (Vitamin S), Tokyo, Osaka (MIIT House) and Seoul (Bulgasari and Contact Dance Improvisation Group). In 2010 he did a residency at Seoksu Art Project in South Korea, and performed at the 2012 Gwangju Biennalle. He is interested in the blues harmonica, self-made instruments and field-recordings.

“…it’s critical to achieve robustness against breakdown of various kinds, but also in the complexity space there are certain pathways in the organization of things that provide an access to very simple breakdown which is what we see as fragility.” Markus Buehler, Materials Scientist
