Audio Foundation Winter Residency Announced - Kraus

Audio Foundation Winter Residency Announced - Kraus


The Audio Foundation is pleased to announce that Kraus (aka Pat Kraus) will be artist in residence at the Audio Foundation from 4 to 18 August 2014. The AF Residency provides NZ artists with the opportunity to make work in a context free of traditional day-to-day pressures, to focus on their work for a sustained two-week period in August 2014. The goal of the AF Residency Programme is to support outcomes in the form of adventurous and well realised new sound-related work presented to the public.


For this residency Kraus will work on new solo recordings, and on the development of the Musical Electronics Library (MEL) which will launch in early September 2014, to be hosted on-site at the Audio Foundation.


Kraus is an Auckland musician with over fifteen years of experience as a composer, multi-instrumental performer, sound engineer and instrument builder. He has released over a dozen recordings on local and international labels, including the LPs 'Supreme Commander' (Moniker Records, USA, 2012) and 'Faster than the Speed of Time' (Dilettante Courtoisie, France, 2010). He has been featured in the New Zealand Listener and Music 101(Radio NZ), and appeared on compilations by The Wire, Kraak, and Ultra Eczema. In 2012 he contributed to the book 'Erewhon Calling', a survey of experimental music in New Zealand published by the Audio Foundation/CMR.


Thanks to Pat Kraus for accepting the Audio Foundation's invitation to participate in the AF Winter Residency, special thanks to ASB Trust for supporting the AF Artist Residency Programme. There will be an open callout for proposals for the AF 2015 Summer Artist Residency, this callout will be announced in September 2014.

Scoop Review Of Books: Excerpt - Ice Bear: The Cultural History Of An Arctic Icon

“During the last decade the image of the polar bear has moved in the public imagination from being an icon of strength, independence and survival in one of the most climatically extreme of world environments, to that of fragility, vulnerability and more generally of a global environmental crisis.” More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
