New Zealand’s masters of dada-funk the Orchestra of Spheres make a most welcome return to Berlin this November where they will give a special performance at Arkaoda in Neukölln. Channeling ancient future funk from the IS! Warping spatioelastoplasticity with sound!
Born out of Wellington’s Frederick Street Sound and Light Exploration Society in 2009, the Spheres have developed a cult-like following in New Zealand. Playing house parties, dance parties, DIY shows and opera houses, the Spheres have built a reputation for musically and visually ecstatic live shows. They’ve toured Europe in 2011 and 2012, and will be back in late 2013 for a series of gigs to promote their new album, Vibration Animal Sex Brain Music.
Like celestial sponges the Spheres’ clonga sound draws on influences far and wide: kuduro, psychedelic primary school disco, fire music, kwaito, free improv, south pacific demolition, shangaan electro, zeuhl, mbalax, kosmische quiche, tarraxo, witch doctor haus, orgasmo brain rave, juke/footwork, polynesian no wave prog, quarr, costume rock, inner brain clap, funk puppetré…The Spheres use homemade instruments like the biscuit tin guitar, electric bass carillon and sexomouse marimba to create their cosmic dancing sound.
