Tour Information
THE SOUND OF SEEING - Three consecutive Friday nights starting on 30th October, 7pm.

The Sound of Seeing is a series of three film screenings at Pyramid Club which present an alternative history of Aotearoa experimental music, seen through the history of artists film and video 1973-2020. Presented by CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aotearoa New Zealand, the project offers a history of NZ experimental music informed not only by radical sonic aesthetics, but also ecological, political and social practices. Curated by Mark Williams and Epic Sweep records, the screenings were programmed not by watching the films, but by listening only to their soundtracks.

Night One - Friday 30 October: moving image works by Tanya Te Miringa Te Rorarangi Ruka, Lissa Mitchell, Terry Urbahn, Gavin Hipkins, Rachel Shearer, Christopher Ulutupu, Bryce Galloway, Richard Von Sturmer, Charlotte Wrightson, Derek Ward, Aliyah Winter. Sonically, the night includes soundtracks from Jane Mihingarangi Ruka, Fever Hospital, Torben Tilly, Wendyhouse, Jed Town and Ieuan Evans with the New Zealand Male Choir. Feature LIVE PERFORMANCE by LUDUS.

Night Two - Friday 6 November: programme continues (more info next week) with live performance by Erika Grant.

Night Three - Friday 13 November: new LIVE PERFORMANCES of new audio and visual commissions from Jamie Berry, Chrissie Butler, Simon Cuming and Thomas Carroll. Plus new recorded soundtracks for films by Jill Kennedy and Lissa Mitchell.

CIRCUIT Director Mark Williams says “This is not only a new way of imagining the history of experimental music in Aotearoa, it is also the first time some of these films have been shown in public for many years”.

The Sound of Seeing is supported by Wellington City Council and Creative NZ.
