Six years on from the creation of NZ cult classic album @Peace and the Plutonian Noise Symphony, @Peace reunites for a special one-off live performance.
Back in 2014, Tom Scott (Home Brew) with Lui Tuiasau on vocals, and a musical soundscape laid down by Christoph El Truento, Hayden 'Dandruff' Dicky and Brandon Haru as @Peace, released their first and only full-length album. @Peace and the Plutonian Noise Symphony was a critically acclaimed modern masterpiece that broke boundaries. It also broke the group. The album, founded on the fear of finality, was ironically their last.
Now the group is reuniting to bring to Auckland Arts Festival a 2020-reinterpretation of the Taite Music Prize-nominated opus in its entirety, accompanied by musical guests Riki Neihana (Trinity Roots) and Jy Jong-Yun Lee (Avantdale Bowling Club), with visuals by Tomek Bogdanowicz and lighting by Brad Gledhill.
The live show promises to reflect the album: a gumbo of existential sci-fi psychedelia inspired by Sun Ra, Pink Floyd, Can and Funkadelic. Performed in the Spiegeltent, this one-off show is a must for music lovers and sci-fi nerds.
