The Tuataras Present 'Inner Space'

The Tuataras Present 'Inner Space'

‘Inner Space’ is a psychedelic musical journey from the third planet outwards to the far reaches of the galaxy - and beyond.

For two shows only the Space Place at Carter Observatory will host an immersive, audiovisual exploration of the cosmos.

Local musical collective The Tuataras will perform a unique set composed specifically for the show, and beamed throughout the planetarium via 8-speaker 360-degree Octophonic sound system directed by sonic artist Bridget Johnson. Erica Sklenars will provide visual accompaniment, combining original imagery with planetarium footage from the Carter Observatory vaults, all projected onto the planetarium dome.
With sound mixing from award- winning recording engineer Lee Prebble and generous assistance from the New Zealand School of Music.
Synthesized atmosphere, swirling organs and sonic guitars will carry you to the edge of a universal mystery - THE BLACK HOLE.

Friday, 26th Feb 8pm, and Sunday 28th Feb 8pm
Space Place at the Carter Observatory
Tickets $25 at Under the Radar

The Octophonic rig is the brain-child of Bridget Johnson, a Wellington-based sound artist. Her inter-disciplinary studies have focused on musical interfaces and spatial performance. Her work has been shown throughout New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Europe, and Asia.

The Tuataras are a new Wellington based musical collective, including members of Spartacus R, The Pyramid Scheme and the Nudge.

Erica Sklenars is a video artist who has performed throughout New Zealand.
