ABOUT KUKI KOORI

Kuki Koori is the brainchild of Iain Gordon and Mick Finn.

 

The aim is to construct a sonic and visual feast from scratch, with Iain and his electronic instruments laying down a trail of hypnotic notes to be chased by Mick’s swirling and ephemeral dashes of painted light.

 

 

As the intensity and the beat builds the live illustrations begin to move in various ways in response to the music.

 

Each performance is uniquely collaborative, with a visible and high-pressure creative process: Iain steps out from behind the keyboards of Fat Freddy's Drop to conjure an electronic symphony from drumbeats, synths, compressors, filters and samples, while Mick responds with hand-drawn art projected large.

 

 

 

Kuki Koori draws on the respective musical and art backgrounds of Iain and Mick, which are influenced by their  indigenous ancestry, Kuki's Ngāi Tahu Iwi and Mick's Yuin people respectively.
