About Orchestra Of Spheres

The Orchestra of Spheres is a wide-ranging quartet from Wellington, New Zealand whose music is a hybrid of global sounds and cultures, from disco and electro to kuduro and mbalax, from neo psych to no wave, from kosmiche to prog, on instruments both formal and homemade. Made up of Baba Rossa (biscuit tin guitar, sexomouse marimba), E = MC303 (electric carillon), Jemi Hemi Mandala (drums), and Mos Iocoss (keyboards and gamelan). The group formed in the early, heady days of Wellington's artist collective, the Frederick Street Sound and Light Exploration Society, in 2009. Their self-released debut EP, Space Art Music, appeared that same year, followed by the full-length Nonagonic Now in late 2010. The Bad Spheres single appeared in March of 2011, and the Numbers EP in June. Meanwhile, the U.K.'s Fire Records signed the group and re-released Nonagonic Now later in the year. An+ intense and prolonged period of touring and recording ensued, resulting in the Fire release of Vibration Animal Sex Brain Music in December of 2013. The group returned with their third album, Brothers and Sisters of the Black Lagoon, in 2016. The album introduced a new Orchestra of Spheres lineup, as E = MC303 had left the group, and Woild Boin replaced Jemi Hemi Mandala on drums. ~ Thom Jurek
