Inspired by fish and the ever-changing, three-dimensional environment they move through, Fish in Pink Gelatine is an experimental music performance in two halves.

Making use of the unique architecture of Victoria University Wellington's Adam Art Gallery, the first half is a performed installation. The five musicians are spread around the space, performing intimate musical and artistic tasks. The audience is invited to move about the gallery, chatting and enjoying custom-made snacks, finding their own path through the environment. Expect origami fish, glass tanks, rubber bands.

The second half is a staged concert. Taking place on the lowest level, in the murky depths, a series of challenging and compelling instrumental solos, gestures and poems (the 'fish') emerge and disappear into the always present soundscapes (the 'waters').

Composed and directed by Elliot Vaughan, Fish in Pink Gelatine is the artistic result of a year spent exploring the extra-aural facets of performed music. It examines the objecthood of instruments and the corporeality of instrumentalists, the three-dimensional space of the venue, light, the politics of creating and consuming art, and the alien strangeness of fish.
