Musician Nathan Haines and digital artist Steve Carr present a collaborative multimedia artwork and live music performance in the atrium of the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.
Blending an exhilarating performance from Nathan and his band including DJ and producer Frank Booker, young practitioners Joe Kaptein (keyboards), Elijah Whyte (drums) and Te Reo vocalist Raymond Bishop, Sound on Sound explores the boundaries between visual and aural artistic disciplines. Steve's re-purposing of archival imagery into exciting new repetitive forms has a symmetry with sampling in the DJ world.
With Frank Booker on board triggering samples and snatches of pre-recorded musical snippets, and live improvised passages from Nathan and his band, Sound on Sound is firmly planted in the new musical territory of blurring the lines between genres and art forms.
Nathan Haines and Steve Carr are internationally recognised artists in their respective fields, and this unique bringing together of their practises will ensure Sound on Sound is both entertaining, thought provoking and visually and aurally exceptional.
