POSTPONED: STROMA | Cage Against the Machine


This event has been postponed until early 2023. Stay tuned for more details.


This is no ordinary concert — ‘choose your own adventure’ by exploring simultaneous performances of ambient, spatial music taking place across the gorgeous Toi Art spaces on Levels 4 & 5 of Te Papa.

Spread over 2½ hours, you can come and go as you please. Have a drink at the bar, then wander around the spaces to experience the ‘sound events’. Follow the schedule, or see where your ear takes you. If you position yourself right, you might hear two or three pieces at the same time; if you miss a piece the first time, you can catch it again later in the evening.

Throughout the evening, Stroma will be performing works by renowned composers such as John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, James Tenney and Alvin Lucier, as well as a selection of works by New Zealand composers. Low-level ambient sonic art by Wellington-based sonic artists will be also performed, mingling with the acoustic sounds of Stroma.

Multiple works by John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, James Tenney, Alvin Lucier, Peter Ablinger, Rachael Morgan, Simon Eastwood, and others tba
