Kraus is a psychedelic musician based in Auckland. His singular and eclectic recorded work encompasses a range of influences, from Golden Age electronics and psychedelic rock, to Eastern folk and pre-modern Western musics.
Since 2002 he has released 15 albums, and presented his mind-boggling and endlessly evolving live performances throughout New Zealand, Australia and Europe. His latest album “Grip the Moon” is available from Soft Abuse Records.
Ede Eves –
Edwina Stevens (Ede Eves) is an audiovisual artist working across live performance, installation and spatial sound design, investigating the ‘sound of place’ via composition, improvisation and performance.
Working with analogue audio equipment, found acoustic instruments, and field recording equipment, their minimal and haunting soundscapes relate experiences of remoteness, where time behaves differently.
A substantial amount of Edwina’s work has been produced during self-directed residencies and impromptu travel.
Motte (Anita Clarke) –
Motte is the solo project of Wellington-based violinist and composer Anita Clark. Weaving together a richly textured world with a violin, delay pedal, electronics, and voice, Motte rides the line between beauty and devastation, creating a world solely her own.
The sound is an improvised, modern classical meeting of alternative, experimental pop. Since 2015, Motte has released two albums since 2015, ‘Songs For Movies’ and ‘Strange Dreams’, with a third due for release in 2020.
While frequently touring throughout Australasia, Anita also composes for dance, recently for the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 2019 Choreographic Series, and film, recently a Wellington short-film ‘Bloom’, a Sydney based short ‘Shadows’ which recently played at Cannes Film fest, and a soundtrack for Montreal based experimental film maker Alexandre Larose.
A CENTURY A SALT will also be playing live at LOOP on Thursday the 21st Aug at 8:00 pm with special guests Ov Pain, Kraus, Motte & Jeff Henderson.
