New York Music Project 60X60 Comes to Wellington

New York Music Project 60X60 Comes to Wellington

 

Global annual electronic music project 60x60 is coming to Wellington for its first-ever performance in New Zealand at music venue Happy this Wednesday, September 10, organised by White Fungus and New York-based composers group Vox Novus.

Started by Vox Novus in 2003, 60x60 aims to highlight and disseminate experimental music composition from throughout the world by compiling an annual mix of 60 works by 60 composers, where each piece is 60 seconds or less in duration.

60x60 is released on CD and presented in performances involving a large analogue clock and utilizing local artists from different disciplines to help present the work. 

Thus far the project has received more than 2500 submissions from more than 50 countries and 60x60 events have held in cities including Sydney, Bucharest, Munich, London, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. As well as an international mix, Vox Novus also compiles regional mixes when enough submissions are received.        

60x60 was recently presented on Concert FM’s Upbeat but this is the first chance New Zealanders will have to experience the project live. The Wellington event will premiere the 2007-08 Pacific Rim mix and will also include live performances by Birdcatcher (Antony Milton and Bill Wood) and Harry Rama with Chris Barama (Jeff Henderson group).

60x60 starts at 8pm next Wednesday, September 10 at Happy (cnr of Vivian and Tory Street). Check out www.voxnovus.com or www.whitefungus.com for more details.
