Brilliant to see Gate perform his rumbling sonic guitar noises at the Physics Room last week.
Gate (Port Chalmers resident Michael Morley) performed alongside IRD from Christchurch and Pete Swanson from the USA. Gate's set consisted of brilliant droning guitar feedback and rumblings that are a favourite aspect of his sound art for me.
The venue, a dark room behind the Physics Room gallery space was perfect. I was also struck by the large number of cycles parked outside - it got me thinking this town is ridiculously flat and one opportunity that I would hate the rebuild of Christchurch miss out on is good safe cycleways in and out of the cbd.
