Undertheradar Presents
Julianna Barwick New Zealand Tour October 2016

Pre-sale tickets on sale now from www.undertheradar.co.nz

"Her ethereal multi-tracked harmonies have the devotional quality of gospel choirs, and the oddball allure of Björk or Yoko Ono." - THE NEW YORK TIMES

This October, US experimental music sensation Julianna Barwick arrives in New Zealand for the first time, to perform in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. We are happy to now be able to announce the support acts for all three shows.

Wed 19 Oct - Whammy Bar, Auckland, with support from Seth Frightening

The music of Seth Frightening is complex and varied but also focused and direct to the point of rawness. His music tells stories with shifting, clouded characters and evasive narrative, speaking as much to our own lives as to the one he himself leads. This ability to connect, to draw listeners out of their ease and guardedness, speaks as much about the depth and richness of his character as to it does about his soaring and richly textured voice

Thu 20 Oct - Caroline, Wellington, with support from Long Distance

Long Distance is the new project of Wellington's Lucy Beeler, previously part of the now deceased Crystal Magic Records canon under the moniker lttle phnx. Her sounds are lo-fi low-key pop; keyboard confessionals undulating waves of maudlin-soaked reverb. Surging melodies and convenient preset-accompaniment short-cut through the familiar straight to the heart. Long Distance is currently working on a debut full length, out soon on Cursed Helm.

Fri 21 Oct - Darkroom, Christchurch, with support from Motte and Pale Blue Dot

The solo project of Anita Clark from Devilish Mary, Motte is reverb swamped violin through delay, recorded in the bedroom/somewhere in the tropics or a hothouse full of moths. Pale Blue Dot is Indi and Matt from Doprah making intergalactic ambient vibrations in the vein of Doctor Who and Brian Eno with electronics and found sound.

A world-wandering singer and composer with family roots in Louisiana, Julianna Barwick has spent the decade, in the words of The Fader "articulating the ineffable" through largely wordless soundscapes built around multiple loops and layers of her rural church choir trained singing voice. Over the course of three critically acclaimed full-length albums, various collaborative projects and several EPs, she's cultivated an audience across the globe, in the process locating herself within a similar set of spaces to those occupied by Grouper, Meredith Monk, Low and This Mortal Coil. Along the way, Julianna Barwick has played piano for Yoko Ono, performed at Carnegie Hall at the annual Tibet House concert with the Flaming Lips and Philip Glass, re-imagined of Bach's 'Adagio' from Concerto In D Minor and toured with Bon Iver.

With rave reviews for her new album Will coming in from Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, Spin, Tinymixtapes and Drowned In Sound, we look forward to presenting Julianna Barwick live in a series of intimate concerts for audiences in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in October.

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

Howard Davis: The Back of the Painting

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>


Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>


Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>

Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>

Howard Davis: Byrneing Down the House - Spike Lee's American Utopia

Lee does an admirable job capturing Byrne's stunning live performance of his latest album, but the real star of the show is the staging. More>>
