GUEST ARTISTS HAVE NOW BEEN CONFIRMED
DJCXL (who’ll be DJing throughout), Frisko (aka Alphrisk), Tyree and Ermehn will all be performing along with longstanding members of the Remix crew JEM and Anonymouz.
Graffiti crew FDKNS will also be involved drawing in real time on tablet computers, and the results will be projected on screens as they work.
After four years of “Remix” courses at OMAC (the Otara Music and Arts Centre) where APO musicians and professional hip hop artists came together to work with young urban musicians, we present a full-scale orchestral concert of new music developed from these sessions.
For the first time in the four years of the Remix project the full APO will be involved in the performance. Five APO musicians will also play as featured orchestral artists: Miranda Adams (violin), Eric Renick (percussion), Brent Grapes (trumpet), Ingrid Hagan (bassoon) and Bridget Miles (Clarinet).
Fusing the power of the full symphony sound, the message of local lyrics, the groove of pro hip hop artists and the improvising talent of a number of gifted performers, the resulting performance will be nothing short of mind-blowing.
Supported by THE EDGE’s STAMP programme for developing new creativity, this concert is a non-stop 90-minute programme connected by drum and bass and original music orchestrated by conductor Kenneth Young. This promises a very special Auckland sound and vision.
Come along and be part of the cutting edge of Auckland music
