Gigs and things

TO SLEEP – the 2nd longest continuous piece of music, which we performed at The Meteor was super fun and we are currently exploring possibilities for future performances in various locations around NZ…

“What followed was an experience like no other. Each movement of music was long and slow, set to the pace of a resting heartbeat. At about 4 or 5am, I wanted to applaud as one of the movements resolved. Yotam’s cello was a wonderful counterpoint to the other instruments, and to hear the final note as I anticipated it, and then drawn out musically, was breathtaking. The music never stopped, and neither did Aaron Chesham’s lightshow and the art.
Visual artist Paul Bradley maneuvered fabric, paper and other objects which were then cleverly projected above. My favourite part of his performance was seeing his mesmerising windswept heroines actualise on the cloudlike ceiling.” – Yvonne Milroy (review through Write On)
