Sound Art Performance aboard the Christchurch Tram!

Christchurch, New Zealand
6.45pm - board at the tram stop in Cathedral Square

Trambience is a performance event organised by The Physics Room, featuring audio artists Adam Willets (NZ) and Sarah Peebles (Canada). The performance will take place on board one of the city's beautifully restored heritage trams. Performers Sarah Peebles and Adam Willets will create experimental soundtracks as the tram progresses around the city loop for one hour. The artists will improvise, interweaving their own compositions with the sonic pollution of the tram and the cityscape beyond.

Adam Willets is a sound artist and musician who produces improvised works using samplers and shortwave radios. For Trambience, Adam will be performing using tilt sensing gamepads to enable samples to be manipulated by the movements and vibrations of the tram. Sarah Peebles is an audio artist based in Canada, currently working in New Zealand towards a broadcasting project with National Radio's 'RPM'. Her Tokyo soundwalk composition "108" is currently on exhibition at The Physics Room gallery. Trambience is a project initiated by Zita Joyce and Adam Willets.
