Iconic Sonics

City Gallery Wellington, Wellington

The revolution is here! Prepare yourself for big works and bold sounds from some of the most iconic ‘sonic revolutionists’ of the twentieth century — Witold Lutoslawski, György Ligeti, Kaija Saariaho and Iannis Xenakis. The next generation is represented by a world premiere from leading young New Zealand composer Reuben Jelleyman. Iconic Sonics will be held in the beautiful gallery spaces of City Galley Wellington, surrounded by images from their 'Iconography of Revolt' exhibition.
