An immersive surround sound listening experience
Opening: Thursday 12 January 5.30pm Exhibition Dates: 13 January – 4 February
NZSM PhD graduate Thomas Voyce will be presenting a collection of recordings, electroacoustic compositions and collaborative fixed-media works at Toi Pōneke Gallery over the coming weeks, as part of his tenure as the first Toi Pōneke/New Zealand School of Music Sound Artist in Residence. This inaugural collaborative residency between Toi Pōneke and the NZSM has been established to create a platform for sound-based art in Wellington. Wellington born and bred, Thomas studied electroacoustic composition at Victoria University under Dr. John Young in the late 1990s before completing Honors, Masters and most recently a PhD with Dr. Dugal McKinnon. He is a founding member of Rhombus, and has vast experience in the commercial music and experimental sonic scene. Thomas' installation at Toi Pōneke will be largely devoid of visual images, instead focusing on the intersection between the composed recordings and the listener. In the gallery space he will be creating an immersive environment, with an 8-channel (octophonic) speaker system, that enables the listener to concentrate on sound alone. His installations will be part of a larger programme where invited members of the sonic arts community will create opportunities for the public to experience their work (see other events below). Stayed tuned into Toi Pōneke's facebook page for performance updates.
