A special one-off performance by American sonic artist Jason Lescalleet, presented by ALTMUSIC as part of the Deep Days, Listening Nights Tour.
Jason Lescalleet is a celebrated experimental electronic music artist whose influence on the contemporary avant-garde cannot be overstated. His work is distinctive, drawing from a wide variety of sonic sources, and often takes formal cues from modern musique concrete, for example in his utilisation of reel-to-reel tape machines in both live and studio settings.
His discography is striking, both for its scale and collaborative quality.
For his Christchurch show Jason will be joined by some of the city's most renowned sonic artists.
Join us for a day-long celebration of jazz to commerate the opening of our new exhibitions Len Lye: Stopped Short by Wonder and Henri Matisse: Jazz.
In early March we were lucky enough to have the incredibly talented Grayson Gilmour performing at the Gallery, supported by the equally talented Purple Pilgrims and New Dawn. I love these gigs, but there is a lot of work to be done behind the scenes to make sure that, by the time the public walk in the door, the foyer is gig ready. The process normally feels like a long, slow marathon with a sprint at the final corner. So here’s a guide to how you too can get the NZI Foyer gig-ready in five (or six) easy steps.
