17 Nov:
DJ Marie Celeste, L$D Fundraiser, bonehead + Parks, Clinton Watkins, File Folder, Ron Gallipoli, DJ Fiasco.

Artist Bios:

DJ Marie Celeste (J9R):
– Marie Celeste is a fixture of Auckland’s dance music scene. Her sets as ‘J9R’ continually push the limits what can be acceptably incorporated into a mix. Additionally, her work as a promoter and organizer have resulted in some of the most exciting events of contemporary electronic dance-music, presenting shows for some of the world’s foremost producers and DJs.

Andrew McMillan (bOnEhEaD):
– Andrew McMillan is a staple of underground electronics in Auckland. As ‘bOnEhEaD’, McMillan performs regularly, solo and in improvised and always adventurous combinations. Recently, at the Auckland Art Gallery, in collaboration with Sean Martin Buss, McMillan presented a performance sonifying et al. and Samuel Holloway’s Upright Piano (2013).

Using the musical programming software, Pure Data (Pd), McMillan and Buss reconstructed Holloway’s 99-page score as drones, pops and filter-sweeps based on quantity of black vs. white.

Parks (Ladi6):
– Brent ‘Parks’ Park is best known for his work as producer for Ladi6. Less well know is his love of modular synthesis, which he has recently taken to exploring in more experimental settings, such as his recent performance with drone-outfit, The Metabolists.

Clinton Watkins:
– Auckland artist and musician Clinton Watkins has worked with combinations of sonic and visual material for the past fifteen years, with his primary focus being the translation of sonic frequencies into minimal colour fields through custom audio/visual hardware.

As an experimental musician, Watkins regularly produces and performs as a solo artist and collaboratively as an active member of the minimal electronic improvisation sextet, Plains and one half of the electronic noise duo 1000. He has released material on many fine labels including Dungeon Taxis, Circle, Claudia, CMR and 20City.

File Folder:
– File Folder are another hometown favourite. The duo, comprised of Ducklingmonster (The Futurians, Rise of the City Cat Cult) and American emigre, Robert Pickle, coalesced loudly over an ironing board in 2014 and have be creating offbeat electronic delights ever since. Their sound is hard, abrasive and on the beat, sneering at fear.

Ron Gallipoli:
– As the acerbic frontman of post-punk outfit Sharpie Crows and now under the alias of Ron Gallipoli, Sam Bradford has directed his misanthropic musings at targets as diverse as Fonterra and the New Zealand Herald. Live, Ron is equal parts contemptuous and engrossing, as evidenced by his incendiary rendition of Lorde’s hit ‘Green Light’ at the 2017 Silver Scroll Awards.

L$D Fundraiser:
– Sullen moans of grumpy guitar amps meet weird bowed metal, home made electronics, and other -weirder- ‘found sounds’ in this infamously confronting solo project of Dunedin’s Dene Barnes.
