Zombies on the Horizon

From RNZ Music, 2:45 pm on 11 June 2016

Aotearoa has a long history of sonic experimentation:  From the electronic bleeps and drones of Douglas Lilburn in the 1960s to Phil Dadson’s homemade instruments of the 80s; The Dead C’s wall of noisy guitars, and Jeff Henderson’s many and varied collaborations.

Zombies on the Horizon is a new exhibition at the Alexander Turnbull Library which connects the dots between these audio adventurers.  

Yadana Saw joins curator Matt Steindl for a listen.
