TFM recap

Apologies for lack of posts here, but I just got back from a week in Auckland for the Titirangi Festival of Music where I screened works from my two Artists Residencies. The screening went very well with no technical problems at all, thanks to the great TFM crew.

The total run time, including an introduction with a few short examples of what I am pursuing, was just under an hour. But the unexpected part for me was that the Q&A following the screening lasted at least that long & could have kept going if we hadn’t had to clear the space for the next act to set up! Such great questions from a really deeply engaged audience – it was the highlight of the entire process for me!

On Monday I went & did a second screening of some of my Little Huia work for all of the Park Rangers, quite a different audience to the TFM one but equally engaged with some great discussion afterwards. Most exciting of all is the potential for ongoing collaboration – some great developments will become apparent in the next month or two, including installation of some of my sounds & music into the Waitakere Parks via embedded weatherproof hardware!

I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along to the screenings and to the organisers of the Titirangi Festival of Music. It was a pleasure to contribute to such a well run event – Titirangi was buzzing the entire weekend with a fantastically diverse range of events, workshops & concerts. Congratulations to all of the TFM team!!

Next step for me is to create surround mixes of my works, plus alternate soundtracks for some of them. And then on to BluRay, DVD and Video on Demand so that I can share them beyond the requirement to be in the same room…. Onwards!
