City Gallery Wellington, Wellington

Stroma brings the gorgeous spaces of the City Gallery Wellington to life with reverberant sonic colour.

Four works by NZ composers will provide 70 minutes of raw musical abandon: the world premiere of Jeroen Speak’s beguiling Eratosthene’s Sieve, a compressed concert version of Michael Norris’s Timedance, based on a deconstruction of Bach’s Suite in B minor, Alison Isadora’s quirky work for string quartet, in which the players have to operate percussion instruments with their feet, and Jack Body’s Interior, a work from 1987 for ensemble and field recordings that has never been performed before in Wellington.
