  • No. 3 from Nine Short Pieces for piano, an arrangement of the Douglas Lilburn piano piece

    de Castro-Robinson, Eve; Lilburn, DG (2015-09-03)

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Stroma: performers Hamish McKeich: conductor The third of Lilburn's Nine Short Pieces has a whimsical, almost cartoonish feel to it, as well as a Latin swing, it's syncopated, suggestive and insinuating, with nudging little statement-phrases answered by low punctuations. It's quasi-humorous, repetitive, insistent and, ironically, very restrained - vintage Lilburn. I've heightened the qualities I hear in it, and exaggerated them, since to me it's crying out to be released from its rather reserved and sparse setting. It seemed to beg colourful, distinctive instrumentation, a clear texture which is enriched where needed, and I've added characterful percussion and sonic touches such as a flexatone and the vocal ahhs and oohhs to release its jazzy quality. To me, it's in Lilburn's piano oeuvre that he reveals his true self. Composers understand that they are laid bare in pianistic utterance, and this is particularly evident in DGL. If you listen say, to the first of the Three Sea Changes, the material itself is extremely economical, but its emotional impact is immediate. Few works speak to me so eloquently of NZ, as much of DGL's piano music. Despite DGL being rather cool and terse on the surface, the interactions I had with him exposed a warm and wry side. There's an irony in that the first thing he ever said to me was after hearing a student work of mine played in St Andrew on the Terrace in the mid-80s: "Yes, I heard your piece - a bit too intellectual for me". I offer up this arrangement as a non-intellectual birthday gift from a fellow-Scorpio, whose birthday is a week after his.

  • Restless Idiom: A mini-survey of Cousins recent work. Made between 2009-2015.

    Cousins, James

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Cousins, J., artist, Gordon-Smith, I., curator James Cousins’ practice pivots around questions of how a painting might function: how do we understand the status of an image? What systems guide our understanding? What processes could be used to disrupt these assumptions? Restless Idiom is a mini-survey of Cousins recent work. Made between 2009-2015, the exhibited works combine what might otherwise be perceived as contradictory painting concerns: the figurative and the abstract: the illusory and the material. These oppositional qualities are unified to create an optical instability, prompting the eye to constantly move between the representations of familiar flora and fauna images as perceived from afar, and the abstractions of colour and geometry when viewed up close. The result calls into question the certainty of representational conventions. By placing the image into an equilibrial tension with the material effects of particular processes, Cousins creates a fresh encounter with what painting might be and provokes a heightened consciousness of the very act of looking.

  • host for SATB choir

    de Castro-Robinson, Eve (2015-06-01)

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Eve de Castro-Robinson: composer of the original composition Robert Wiremu: conductor I was delighted to be asked to write host for Karen Grylls’ Auckland Chamber Choir. My first choral work written at her request was Chaos of delight III, a vocal soundscape of avian sonorities for women’s voices. host is also abstract, based not on a text, but on the Vowel Clock used to train choral singers. The whole work is based on the note A and its upper partials and as the singers move around the space, various harmonics from the chord are heard. The title refers to the movement of birds in formation, often called a host. Commissioned by Robert Wiremu for Karen Grylls's 30 year anniversary conducting the Auckland Chamber Choir

    The University of Auckland Library

    Simon Rees, Judge “I remember looking at dog-shit on the pavement and suddenly I realised, there it is – this is what life is like. Strangely enough it tormented me for months… I think of life as meaningless; but we give meaning during our own existence. We create certain attitudes which give it meaning while we exist, though they in themselves are meaningless, really.” – Francis Bacon, interview with David Sylvester, 1975.

  • Assemblages

    Mackel, D; Gregory, Nuala

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Mackel, D., collaborator Over the past three years both artists have worked collaboratively in an installation format under the broad theme of landscapes of the past. For this exhibition, Deirdre Mackel has produced an installation entitled ‘Accidental Gardens 2’. It consists of a child-like garden made from an enclosure of miniature barbed wire fences, and toy gardening tools, including elements of Nuala Gregory’s flower works and small sculptures or ‘shelves’, assembled together allowing for the combination and interplay of ideas and materials derived from two locations. Deirdre references her remembered landscapes of growing up in West Belfast throughout the conflict and Nuala responds with objects representing those commonly found in the earth - old bottles delicately embellished with buttercups and daisies, combining them with lemon wood blocks to reference her current landscape of New Zealand. This assemblage of objects, symbolises the way things are thrown together in chaotic metropolitan space, forming accidental relations among which new possibilities might yet be glimpsed.
