Cubasonic: a mass musical disruption coming to the capital

From Nine To Noon, 9:25 am on 7 February 2020

A mass musical disruption is coming to the Capital as part of the CubaDupa festival next month.

500 musicians will line Cuba Street from one end to the other and perform an original score by Wellington composer John Psathas.

Add in a sound system across multiple city blocks and a locally-invented Tesla coil that can be played like a keyboard and shoots lightning into its surrounding and you've got Cubasonic.

Lynn's guests are John Psathas and CubaDupa director Gerry Paul. CubaDupa is on March 28 and 29 in Wellington.
