A focus on current practices from New Zealand, and the voice displaced, provide the unifying threads for this week's concert. Wellington's Death Ghat fuse the mayhem and intensity of extreme improvised hardcore with the abstraction and abrasion of avant noise, exemplifying the fertility of the New Zealand avant improv scene. NZ emigre, Kevin CK Lo is joined by Casey Moir and Robbie Watt for a trio spanning the sonsosphere by way of the electronic, the amplified, the acoustic and the natural. And Auckland's Matt Brennan is joined by French free-grind-improv drummer extraordinaire, Florent Collin in an exclusive collaboration.
