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: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
