Audio Foundation/Wine Cellar/Whammy Bar/Silo Park
Tune in to outrageous dimensions of audible activity!
Audio Foundation is very excited and proud to present the Now! Here! Festival - a three-day celebration with New Zealand / Aotearoa's inventive and accomplished sound artists and musicians championing the experimental and avant-garde in all its multitudinous, intriguing and unpredictable forms.
Now! Here! Festival features a range of emerging and established sound artists contributing to Erewhon Calling, a new publication surveying the vital experimental music scene in NZ to be launched on the opening night.
Legendary and internationally regarded artists such as trailblazing noise-rockers The Dead C, The Coolies and Bad Statistics, experimental electronic figureheads Rosy Parlane, Omit and Rachel Shearer, exponents of adventurous improvisation Jeff Henderson and Peter Stapleton, innovative guitar expansionists Greg Malcolm and Bruce Russell; and such liminal talents as Sean Kerr, Stanier Black Five and Mr Sterile Assembly - plus many more visionary NZ artists over three days and nights will provide a rare treat for adventurous listeners!
Alongside the many performances will be Children’s workshops, Mongolian vocal classes, Sound Walks, Discussions, a live Cinema Event in collaboration with Film Archive and free daytime performances in the unique echo chambers of the Silo space in Wynyard Quarter
