OJP023 : Haco - Kent Macpherson - Megan Berry - Jeremy Mayall / Wild Sonic Blooms
Wild Sonic Blooms is a collaboration between Haco San, the famous Japanese composer, vocalist, electroacoustic performer, sound artist, and founding member of After Dinner (1981-1991) and Hoahio and 3 New-Zealander artists and teachers from the Wintec school of Media Arts Waikato Institute of Technology.
They invited Haco San to perform a semi improvised one hour set which was the base for a video performance at Ramp Gallery, Hamilton, NZ - 11.12.2016, by Jeremy Mayall, Kent Macpherson, Megan Berry, and Haco.
Kent worked with Haco first in 2012, where she was invited to collaborate with him as part of the Spark international festival of music, media, arts and design. They performed the work 'BugLoop' in Hamilton New Zealand. A multimedia sound art improvisation centred on water as its source. You can watch the full experience here.
As part of his 2016 research outputs, Kent applied for a research grant to bring Haco to NZ once again to collaborate with a larger group of musicians. They spent 2 days in Studio A at the school of music (Wintec), recording over 6 hours of music. Also 2 live performances were realised on the same day and captured on film. The afternoon performance is the recording you are experiencing through this release.
