Noel Meek


Born: 1979 Website  


“Meek’s composition is about alliances.” – Su Ballard, author of Art and Nature in the Anthropocene: Planetary Aesthetic.

Noel Meek is a Pākehā musician, composer, and artist based in Ōtautahi, Aotearoa. His interest is in finding meeting points with the non-human world and with te ao Māori in an effort to explore what decolonised works rooted in the whenua of Aotearoa might be.

“Improvisation with an evident state of mantra mind” – Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth.

Meek has performed extensively internationally and throughout Aotearoa. He has presented works with The Adam Art Gallery, The Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, St Paul St Gallery, Enjoy Contemporary Art Space, SCAPE Public Art, Circuit, and The Len Lye Foundation. He currently sits on the programming board of CoCA Toi Moroki. He has taught workshops with the Christchurch Art Gallery, the New Zealand School of Music, and the Massey College of Creative Arts.

“The curse of contrived seriousness is often the Achilles heel of experimental music. Not in the hands of Noel Meek . . . the artist's vision isn't bleak or brutish [it’s] a playful, outright fun listen.” – The Wire.
