Ethersonic = Expanded Cinema + Industrial/Ambient Sonics.
Even before the changes brought by Covid19 on travel and venues Ben wanted to find a way to take his solo sonics and projection work into live performance situations in multiple cities around the world, enlisting help from local players in each place. Ethersonic has since developed as a network of artists in cities where shows are staged. This creative collision brings film outside the frame and sounds outside of a gig to the night in a condensed Ethersonic set.
NZ experimental artist, Kodama 木 creates sonic landscapes with an otherworldly essence. Kodama 木 explores deeply layered atmospheres which invite introspection and presence. Listeners will be taken on a dreamy celestial journey.
Film premiere - Solar
Directed by Baxter Gray (2020)
SOLAR is a reflection of fears and thoughts about the future. It is a film about a future that one hopes will never occur. With themes of isolation, xenophobia and a post climate change world.
