Tour Information
In conjunction with their current exhibition at Pyramid Club, Riki Pirihi and Daniel Beban are getting together to present a night of found sound, tape loops, field recordings and live electronics.

Riki Pirihi (Ngāti Wai, Patuharakeke, Ngāti Māhanga), a composer, and musician, presently residing in Te Whanganui a-Tara, has recently completed a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in composition. His doctoral research has been centred on the cultivation of a unique lexicon termed Rangatuone, which intertwines the principles of Conduction with expressive signs and gestures, tailored specifically for the composition and performance of taonga pūoro alongside Western instruments.

Daniel Beban is a musician and sound artist who lives in Wellington, New Zealand. He performs on a number of different instruments in groups including Orchestra of Spheres, Farewell Spit, The Stinging Nettles, Devils Gate Outfit, Micro Soft Voices, UMU and others.  He builds sound sculptures and invented instruments out of found objects and recycled materials. Through his work as a radio sound engineer, Daniel has experimented at length with reel-to-reel tape machines. The tape machine has formed the basis of much of his electronic work, especially with Imbogodom (duo with Alexander Tucker).
