Other-worldly sounds and creatures inhabit the forest to haunt, trick and delight. Electroacoustic band Barn Owl weaves a dark drone narrative using heavily effected electric guitars. Artist Christine Choi summons ‘Ghosts of Gondwana’, an inter-genre essay on extinct New Zealand creatures, lineage, love, creative processes, and their interrelated emotionality. Choi presents a multimedia performance: the reading of the essay will be accompanied by a silent video and an interactive sound station that will be driven by audience movements. Through dreamlike recombinations of images, Ghosts touches on the grief and delight held in both biological and cultural evolution. Musician Lazurus imagines ‘The Trickster’ in his/her many forms whether coyote/crow – demon/sylph through poem/songs and his ongoing relationship with this ever sneaky friend.
