METONYMIC 1995 - 2009
Metonymic grew out of a desire to release our own material and has continued to evolve as a focus for a developing group of New Zealand experimental musicians, visual artists, and filmakers. Originally conceived as a respons to limited resources, a distinctive Metonymic aesthetic has emerged, using a hi-tech/low-tech mix of analogue and digital, utilising sophisticated design and low-cost materials. The music itself intersects a number of established genres such as free-jazz, experimental classical, musique concrete, and noise-rock. Above all the emphasis is on encouraging the experimental and the innovative.
