about

NOA007:

Noa Records presents - Virtual Shadow Ensemble; a virtual collective of sonic voyagers, a vessel for channeling Papatuanuku's messages during a time of global human separation.

Made within the span of ten days during a national lockdown in Aotearoa amidst a global pandemic, this virtual recording project reflects a widespread upheaval taking place in our collective consciousness, being forced away from each other physically into social isolation - a situation that seems to have turned the tides (for many at least) on a social climate of isolation that already exists in todays society. Cyber-architecture via social media has provided space for creativity to flourish during a time when our presence is felt stronger online in the absence of face-to-face interaction with our peers.

Despite physical distance we are still connected, still creating together.

'KEEP YOUR DISTANCE!' features spoken word poetry from Aije (Tāmaki Makaurau), Janina Nana Yaa (Tāmaki Makaurau), Julian Lubin (Tāmaki Makaurau) and Ryan Hendriks (Tāmaki Makaurau) overlapping collages of sonic-pieces recorded in our bedrooms/home studios from musicians such as: Riki Gooch (Pōneke, drums/percussion), Elias Dobbyn (Tāmaki Makaurau, percussion), Hasji (Tāmaki Makaurau, percussion), Larsen Taylor (Tangiteroria, bass/guitar/keyboards/altered alto saxophone/koauau), Kurt Murray (Perth, percussion/synths/keyboards/effects), Benny Lindsay-Williams (Pōneke, synthesiser), Joe Lindsay (Pōneke, trombone), Sebastian Soto (Tāmaki Makaurau, trutuka/flute/trumpet/alto saxophone/keyboards), Nāvakatoa Tekela-Pule (Tāmaki Makaurau, synthesiser, percussion), Leonardo Coghini (Pōneke, electric piano) and JY Lee (Tāmaki Makaurau, flute, saxophones).

This project speaks from the immediate times in which we live and unearths subconscious thoughts reflecting the particular places we inhabit in the world and the spaces we navigate energetically, also communicating through the complexities of how we relate to the world(s) around/within us today; acknowledging the artificial worlds, the physical worlds, the real worlds, and the thousands of others we occupy in any given moment.

Tino Rangatiratanga!
