Peter Wright


Peter Wright is an avant-guitarist whose general method is to play simple tones and melodies on his guitar which are then run through a bank of pedals and effects, and at times are mixed with field recordings or other outside sources. The results are -- without exception -- massive, gorgeous drones. His myspace page lists something like 20 releases, most of which are difficult to track down.

Peter Wright is an avant-guitarist whose general method is to play simple tones and melodies on his guitar which are then run through a bank of pedals and effects, and at times are mixed with field recordings or other outside sources. The results are -- without exception -- massive, gorgeous drones. His myspace page lists something like 20 releases, most of which are difficult to track down. "New Zealand native Peter Wright has invested a significant chunk of the last 20 years investigating ways of deconstructing the guitar, presenting re-imagined abstract audio fields, loosening the shackles by which the instrument is traditionally constrained. For the last decade Wright has developed into one of New Zealand's most prolific recording artists, releasing 8 CDs (including two double and one triple disc set) and a host of limited edition cdrs and records on labels across the world including Install, Dirty Knobby, Celebrate PSI Phenomenon, PseudoArcana, Last Visible Dog, Archive, Students of Decay, Digitalis. In performance Wright utilises a combination of environmental recordings and found sound in tandem with an open tuned 12 string electric guitar to improvise his way down a hidden path into an aural world inhabited by both recognisable and distinctly alien spirits.

At times Wright's instrumental musings have an almost lyrical, poetic familiarity, like a half-formed memory flickering out a distant signal from damaged synapses. Depending on the physical setting, Wright's performances can be quiet, intimate affairs, like a semi-private ceremony, or voluminous enveloping events that twist and tangle the emotional responses to sound."
