Event type: Music Events31 August 2019 from 7.30 pm
Featuring three new works written for New York-based duo panSonus (Jon Clancy, percussionist/sound artist & Amber Evans, vocalist/conductor) by trailblazing young composers hailing from three corners of the world (New Zealand, Taiwan, and the US) in addition to works by NZ experimental music legend Annea Lockwood and underrepresented composers from Austria, Cuba, and Jerusalem, this special program is a markedly unconventional celebration of cultural and musical multiplicities. In the spirit of panSonus’ artistic ethos, each piece places the performers in wildly different scenarios outside of traditional performance practices, further accentuating the diversity of sonic possibilities and approaches that experimental music inspires.

Comprised of New York-based musicians Jon Clancy (Westfield, NJ) and Amber Evans (Brisbane, AUS), panSonus is an interdisciplinary duo that seeks to promote and collaborate in the creation of new and experimental works for combinations of voice, percussion, theatre, and electronics, that transcend their respective traditional practices. Through their work, the duo curates uniquely engaging and visceral performance experiences that heighten awareness of corporeal, spacial, and material resonance, and advocates for thoughtful, inclusive, and conceptual programming practices.
