Olympia-based painter and experimental musician Arrington De Dionyso has announced four shows in as many days in August. The prolific artist has worked with bands such as Old Time Relijiun, co-founded the Olympia Experimental Music Festival and directed the documentary Reak: Trance Music and Possesion in West Java.

While on these shores, De Dionyso will be playing both solo sets and collaborative improv tunes with the likes of taonga puoro master Rob Thorne, Tom Callwood (of Teeth, The Phoenix Foundation) and Jonny Marks (throat singing maestro of All Seeing Hand) to name a few.

Painter and musician, Arrington de Dionyso conjures utopian spaces with multiphonic vocal work & minimalist instrumentation. It's shamanic seance meets rock'n'roll ecstasy. Trance-punk combining traditional ritual trance, electrified experimental approaches, dancehall rhythms, gamelan scales and mystically inspired Indonesian incantations. Shocking and hallucinatory, Arrington de Dionyso brings the magic to New Zealand for the first time, playing solo and with local musical maestros.
