Saplings Records Showcase: Fis and Rob Thorne
Philip Carter Family Auditorium
$15 per ticket
Berlin-based electronic composer/producer Fis (Oliver Peryman) returns to his hometown with Rob Thorne (Ngāti Tumutumu) for a one-off performance before heading to Dark MOFO in Hobart. Don't miss this incredible hybrid of electronic sound design and taonga pūoro.
Backed by a powerful PA in the Philip Carter Auditorium, the pair will present a live medley of sorts - bookending a duo performance with solo sets - it’ll make for an intimate, physical and meditative movement from raw acoustics to amplified sound sculpture.
Earlier this year the duo inaugurated Fis' new imprint Saplings Records with their EP Ngā Parirau o te Kārearea. In partnership with Eden Reforestation projects, Saplings are piloting a 'bio-digital' release format - planting at least 40 trees for every sale of the EP. Since release, Ngā Parirau o te Kārearea has funded over 8500 trees, and been named one of Fact Magazine’s favourite releases of the year to date.
