Sound artist Kingsley Spargo performs material from the acclaimed album Chasing Spirits, and previews new material from the forthcoming album. The Auckland based artist is touring the upper North Island with double bassist Chris Orange. Drawing across theatre, free improvised and contemporary music his most recent compositions include narratives of yearning and the geometry of life. His broad sound palette both captivates and confronts, music critic William Dart described Chasing Spirits “…a bit like a trip to an all-star cocktail lounge". No stranger to the stage, he has delighted audiences alongside Don McGlashan, SJD, Eve de Castro Robinson, Tim Finn, Violent Femmes and more recently has collaborated with Witi Ihimaera as a sound artist. Ever the musical anarchist, bassman Chris Orange’s pedigree spans the golden era of ‘70’s Auckland punk (Terrorways, The Features) to free jazz in Japan.
Originally hailing from Rotorua, Davey Beige’s music has always embodied a joire de vivre, writing songs that reflect true blue Kiwi life.
