Orchestra Of Spheres / Negative Nancies

Tour Information
Since 2009 New Zealand’s Orchestra of Spheres have developed an international, cult-like following. Playing opera houses, house parties, dance parties, DIY shows and festivals around the world, they have built a reputation for musically and visually ecstatic live shows.

Like celestial sponges, they draw on influences far and wide: the hypnotic beats of Angolan kuduro, the chimes of gamelan music, free jazz and dance music. Their sound has been described as psychedelic disco and ancient future funk and the band have been compared to artists as diverse as Fela Kuti, Sun Ra, Can and Drexciya.

Orchestra of Spheres use homemade instruments such as the biscuit tin guitar, electric bass carillon and sexomouse marimba to create their cosmic dancing sound...

Negative Nancies (Dunedin)
On the surface, it was simple - a floor tom, a snare, a cheap synth, and a guitar - but the sound was like nothing I'd ever heard. The keyboardist played and sang with the percussionist at the back, who commandeered the rhythm section with deep pounding grooves. All the while, the guitarist swayed and gyrated like Jimmy Page, but looked like a philosophy professor as he unleashed a fuzzed out fury of noise at just the right moments. Otago Daily Times
