NZ TOUR - Double CD Release party

Francesca Mountfort / John White - NZ TOUR - Double CD Release party

Friday, Oct 8, 8pm

Francesca Mountfort's "Nervous Doll Dancing" is a magically dark account of soundtracks and scapes of cello-induced samples and performances. As a live version, Francesca enrolls the assistance of chiming clocks and music boxes.

John White's album "Mogwash" is the second solo departure from Dunedin Pop'n'roll band Mestar. It was recorded in Berlin last year with technical and musical help from fellow members of Cloudboy. In a similar vein to first album "Balloon Adventure", twee guitar songs of repetition and side-stepping are the main agenda, this time introducing Mogwash as the star of the show.

Mestar's Stef Animal will be playing songs off an upcoming album and

Rascolnikovs/Users Justin Bar a.k.a Jelly will be joining all three for a sonic jam to end the evening.

$8 Entry, $15 with 1 cd, $20 with 2 cds

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.

Scoop Review Of Books: A Pale Ghost Writer

Reviewed by Ruth Brassington, Richard Flanagan's new novel is about a novelist hastily ghost-writing the biography of a crook about to go to trial. The reader is kept on a cliff-edge, as the narrator tries to get blood out of his stone man. More>>
