A weekend festival of sound installations, performances and listening events, including staff, students and graduates of The University of Auckland School of Music and Elam School of Fine Arts. The installations are open each day from noon-5pm.
Speed of Sound acknowledges the movement inherent in both the production and reception of sound. Listening also plays an important role in our sense of space and place, whether it is through our (conscious or subconscious) awareness of the sound ecology we inhabit, or being transported to destinations real or imagined through recordings and sonic interventions.
Artists include Alex Bennett, Kaleb Bennett, Jasmine Chen, Tim Coster, John Coulter, Richard Francis, Sam Hamilton, Stephen Matthews, James McCarthy, DJN, Charlotte Rose, David Rylands and Clinton Watkins.
