EXPLORE OUR GALLERIES OF SOUND.
This is no ordinary concert — you’ll ‘choose your own adventure’ by exploring the beautiful spaces of Toi Art at Te Papa (Levels 4 & 5) while Stroma performances multiple, simultaneous performances of ambient, spatial music throughout the evening.
Spread over 2½ hours, you can come and go as you please. Have a drink at the bar, then wander around the spaces to experience the sound events. Follow the schedule, or see where your ear takes you. If you position yourself right, you might even hear two or three pieces at the same time. If you miss a piece the first time, you can catch it again later in the evening.
Throughout the evening, Stroma will be performing experimental works by renowned composers such as John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, James Tenney and Alvin Lucier, as well as a selection of works by New Zealand composers. Low-level ambient sonic art by Wellington-based sonic artists will be also performed, mingling with the acoustic sounds of Stroma.
FEATURING A CURATED SET OF SPATIAL/AMBIENT WORKS BY JOHN CAGE, PAULINE OLIVEROS, JAMES TENNEY, ALVIN LUCIER, PETER ABLINGER, PLUS OTHER WORKS BY NZ COMPOSERS AND SONIC ARTISTS — PERFORMED IN MULTIPLE SPACES SIMULTANEOUSLY OVER THE COURSE OF 3 HOURS.
MORE DETAILED PROGRAMMES WILL BE RELEASED LATER IN THE YEAR
