ABOUT TIKI OASIS 2015
From late 19th century Jules Verne Sci-Fi voyages to the perfect future of The Jetsons (and their primitive counterparts The Flintstones); From Fritz Lang’s Futurist inspired Metropolis (1927) to The Star Trek Enterprise’s search for the final frontier, man’s love of Modernism and Primitivism have run parallel in space (Mars and the Moon) as it has on earth (the remote islands of The Polynesian Triangle) Captain James Cook desired to go “farther than any other man has been before.” He discovered many remote islands as well as sailing to Antarctica and being the first to chart parts of Alaska, the final frontier of the Age of Discovery. Ironically we ended up putting a man on the moon decades before we discovered the last tribes in the mountains of Papua New Guinea. Just as Captain Cook’s Endeavor sailed uncharted seas, Star Trek Captain James T. Kirk’s Enterprise took voyages into outer space to discover “strange new worlds, uncharted civilizations, and exotic people.”
In 2015, Tiki Oasis will take you on warp speed from the garage-rock primitivism of The Chocolate Watchband and the vintage style Exotica of Tikiyaki Orchestra to the Blast Off Rock from Earth’s capitol’s house band The Phenomenauts and those beings from another planet Man or Astroman? Pull on your jet pack and jump into the air; grab your raygun and become a space invader; or just relax poolside soaking in the sights and sounds of your own moonage daydream.
