Solo & Duo Performances.

EL SANTO PORTENO, Cnr Norwich Quay & Oxford St, Lyttelton
Bruce Russell is well known round town and beyond as a solo guitar abuser. His tone terrorism consists of equal parts of the white man’s blues and kosmische musik, mixed in a blender with a contact mic attached. His new solo album ‘Antikythera Mechanism’ and his book ‘Left-handed Blows’ will be for sale at the show.
A prolific sound recordist with an extensive discography Peter Wright brings tape hiss and guitar throb to the fore in his first proper solo outing for 2010. His sound explorations are rooted in drones and repetition, weaving a myriad of improvised guitar-based tonal shifts, environmental recordings and electronic effects, evocative of the flickering patterns of light at the periphery of sleep.
Bruce and Peter will each be performing solo sets before joining forces in a collaborative improvisation to round the evening off.
Doors at 8pm, first performance 9pm sharp. A merchandise table will be in operation so bring a few extra dollars to exchange for limited edition collectables from both artists.
