MUSICAL ELECTRONICS LIBRARY

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

MEL

The Musical Electronics Library (MEL) is a lending library of homemade electronic musical devices to be housed at the Audio Foundation in Auckland’s Myers Park. It is currently in development, and will be open to the public in the spring of 2014.

The idea is to encourage DIY electronics activities and they will even provide free tutoring, parts, tools and workshop space! If anyone would like to help out by building something for the library, they are encouraged to get in touch. No prior experience with electronics is necessary.

EASTER SUNDAY PHOTOS

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

I cringe every time I hear John Key refer to the ‘Mum & Dad investors’ who will supposedly benefit from the privatisation of New Zealand’s national assets and I am borderline disgusted at the volume of media coverage given to these overrated royal appendages on their recent ‘tour’ of the country, so it’s nice to see art like this around the streets making light of the situation!

Mum & Dad investorsThe Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and their son George, with NZ Prime Minister John Key. Artist unknown.

It’s true ‘Her Majesty the Queen’ owns alot of land in NZ because her ancestors employees colonised the country over 174 years ago, but I struggle to understand why her grandson and his family coming to visit should be the leading story for almost every news outlet for six days running! Anyway…

These photos are from another show at FTP gallery on New North Road, Auckland, Sunday 19th April. Huge thanks to FTP for having me play & stay!
