APO - Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra

March 4th 2015

Auckland Arts Festival Auckland Town Hall

Music : Kenneth Young Video : Tim Gruchy


Ronan Tighe, artistic director of the APO commisioned Tim to work with New Zealand composer Kenneth Young on this exciting new work premiered at the Auckland Festival. Ken already had the conceptual terrain in mind being an exploration of themes around the importance of water to humanity drawing on historical references as well as contemporary concerns. They colaborated very closely through the composition of the cantata and the associative visual score. On the premier night Ken conducted and Tim played the vision live on stage with the orchestra and choir at the Auckland Town Hall.
