Performing at the Now! Here! Festival on Sunday August 12th, Stanier Black-Five will be harnessing the amazing acoustics of the cement silos of Auckland’s Silo Park. In this performance, she will be building a soundscape using earlier recordings made at the site, re-introduced into the space with its phenomenal reverb.
THE NOW! HERE! FESTIVAL
August 10 – 12 2012
Tune into 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 who contributed 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, 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

holy shit this is immense.. i know it wouldn’t be like being there but are you going to release a recording? and i hope you youboobed this
Yes, it was an amazing space. I did record the performance as I liked the idea of a recording of me working with the recordings I’d previously made there. I haven’t listened back to the recording yet, but if it sounds good, I might even work this into another performance, possibly one in the UK next month. It won’t be in as exciting a space acoustically but the material is still pretty powerful!
