Pyramid Club is happy to present a Matariki concert at Meow featuring sonic adventurers Farewell Spit with special guest, the legendary Shayne Carter, and the ethereal violin and vocals of Motte.

Farewell Spit w/ Shayne Carter

Taking you on sonic voyages through uncharted waters, Farewell Spit is the improvising quintet of Jeff Henderson (electric piano), Daniel Beban (electric guitar), Riki Gooch (drums), Tom Callwood (bass) and Anthony Donaldson (percussion). Like the slow, churning ocean itself, this notorious crew of unchained musicians draw on the volatile elements and legends of the deep, playing slowly evolving, layered epics which are at once calming and devastating. 

For this Matariki concert Farewell Spit are joined by special guest, Shayne Carter (Ngati Tuwharetoa). Carter needs no introduction here. A member of Te Whare Taonga Puoro o Aotearoa (the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame), the Otepoti/Dunedin local is one of most highly regarded musicians to emerge from Aotearoa in the past forty years. He has carved out a long and acclaimed career as the songwriter/singer/guitarist in the bands Dimmer, Straitjacket Fits and Doublehappys, and more recently as a writer and composer for film and dance works.

Jump on board for this one-off sonic journey.



Motte (aka. Anita Clark) builds glacial atmospheres, frozen moods and isolated impressions. As a master violinist and vocalist, Anita Clark is a favourite of the NZ music scene. Her musical gifts and skilful reach across genres makes her an indispensable collaborator with The Phoenix Foundation, Luke Buda, Marlon Williams, Don McGlashan, the Renderers, Nadia Reid, Lawrence Arabia, Delaney Davidson and plenty of others. As Motte, she dances around the shining candescence of her culture like a night insect, always seeking a better vantage point to the light.  

"Motte borrows from an array of sound sources to create an immense entity, with each piece situated precisely along the path... [A] rich sensory experience, transporting the listener into a world of Clark's imagination." - Flying Nun
