Marihiko And The Black Bear
Tonight Black Bear Lodge harbours a special night of percolating sound explorations from across the globe. The show highlight will be Japanese sound artist and composer Marihiko Hara, whose sojourns into ethereal, white-fog ephemera are majestic slices of sonic interaction and discoveries. His album Flora (out through Nightcruising and Drone Sweet Drone) is a mesmeric interweaving of spacious, hesitant piano with field recordings and electronic melding - a deliberate calibration of a gossamer-thin rebirth, opening the eyes for the first time on a new world superimposed over the old, all lit from within. Support is coming from Sydney-based Portuguese artist Matupo (who is releasing his Communication EP on the newly minted Memoirs label on Friday - you can grab it here), jazz improvateurs Mooshim and local debonair manipulator Andrew Tuttle. It's a free show too, so come down, sit on the floor, lie down if you want to, and escape the world for a few hours - you will not be disappointed.
