RUSSELL (HG.), BRUCE - EREWHON CALLING: EXPERIMENTAL SOUND IN NEW ZEALAND (BOOK)


"Erewhon Calling: Experimental sound in New Zealand is a lavishly-illustrated new publication from the Audio Foundation and CMR. It is a survey of how a bunch of antipodean misfits and malcontents have forged new ways and new reasons to make noise, here at the end of the earth. Edited by Bruce Russell, in association with Richard Francis and Zoe Drayton; the aim of this volume is to survey the full range of 'non-standard' audio practices in contemporary NZ culture. The book's remit runs from the borders of composed art music, through improvised noise, to deconstructed 'rock'n pop filth'; and every genre, every scene, every permutation of unconventional audio practice in-between." (label info) essential 192 pp. anthology, with contributions by Brandon W. Joseph, Byron Coley, Michael Morley, Omit, Peter Wright, Rachel Shearer, Rosy Parlane, Campbell Kneale and Antony Milton, Ben Spiers and many, many more
