The second of two nights of experimental sounds from artists coming to Aotearoa for Camp A Low Hum
Elvin Brandhi (UK) is an improvising lyricist, producer and sound artist from Bridgend, Wales making auto-tune blast beats from field recordings, tapes, instruments and voice. Live shows are unyielding bursts of erupting animation where her caustic stream of consciousness cavorts with restless, glitched out heaviness. Her improvisations are a portal to a world with no prescribed frameworks, an opportunity to create without relying on the construct of the past experience. her fast-changing geographies are as rapid and abrupt as her sound
Randy Randall (USA) is a Grammy-nominated composer, songwriter, and guitarist of the experimental punk group No Age. Rooted in the Los Angeles DIY music scene that grew out of Downtown LA all-ages venues like The Smell, Randall has created a signature sound that encapsulates both beautifully fuzzed-out soundscapes and fully-distorted, hard-hitting punk ferocity. Sound Field Volume One, Randall’s solo debut, finds him in a fully contemplative mode. The album unfolds as a series of instrumental ambient pieces inspired by Southern California’s Interstate 10 highway and the varying landscapes it passes through.
NNNC is the long-running project of artist and publisher Fergus Nm, pits waves of corrosive feedback in a duel against lo-tech samples, all while great harmonic flares threaten to overwhelm at any moment. Scavenging influence from the scraps of 90s harsh noise, classic NZ psych-drone, and the most decayed detritus of dub techno, NNNC sets are at once brutal and colourful, joyous and damaging.
