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.
