Band & Musician News - Aoturoa Releases New Single 'Metamorphosis' on May 14

Aoturoa Releases New Single 'Metamorphosis' on May 14

05 May 2021 - 0 Comments

An instrumental Hip-Hop track with accompanying video by Eric Jang, Metamorphosis releases May 14th and will be available on all major platforms for streaming. Eric Jang has created a visually rich journey to explore the frustrations of life in Lockdown. Featuring Rage Art from Eddy Jang, the video and audio evolve to reveal a collage of emotion.

Featuring work spanning the last 18 years including recent compositions from dance work presented at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Aoturoa rewards the listener with a journey into the sacred. Lovingly recreated onto 12" vinyl pressed here in Aotearoa at Holiday Records.

Having established himself as one of Aotearoa's leading drummers performing with the likes of dDub, The Thomas Oliver Band, with the Royal New Zealand Navy Big Band and in New Zealand's premier percussion ensemble Strike! Percussion, Tom Scrase is forging a new path in composition under the moniker Aoturoa.

Creating sound design for dance, film and installation, this creative outlet sees elements of ambient, textural soundscapes blended with complex and hypnotic rhythms and field recordings. Dense and challenging, these sounds are manipulated while retaining the primal sense of connection that permeates Aoturoa's music.

Complimented and grounded with Taonga Puoro, most of which crafted by the artist, Aoturoa is forging a new sound unique to New Zealand.
