  • Frond, for orchestra

    Holmes, Leonie

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Composition for orchestra Frond, for orchestra, has been recorded for inclusion on a CD of orchestral works by New Zealand and Australian composers entitled ???Passing: Fresh orchestral sounds from 9 Australasian Composers???, released on the Move Record label, Australia, Executive Producer Martin Wright, Move Records, Producer Wayne Laird, Atoll Records. (Track 6 Atoll/Move Records MD3327). Frond is a 10 minute orchestral work written as part of my DMus Portfolio of Compositions. In addition to the CD recording, performances have taken place in NZSO Reading workshops, Wellington Town Hall, 2004 and 2006, the University of Auckland Graduation Concert in 2004, and in concert at the Asia Pacific Festival and Conference, Michael Fowler Centre, NZSO, 2007. ???Passing??? has been reviewed by William Dart in the NZ Herald 10th April 2010, Clive O???Connell in the Sydney Morning Herald 29 May 2010, and Jack Body for Move Records Website - http://www.move.com.au/disc.cfm/3327. The Passing CD was featured on Concert FM Pressing On program on 2 and 7 May 2010 and Soundlounge 4 May 2010. Sophisticated responses to environment we heard in Chris Cree Brown's Antarctic-inspired Icescape, and in Leonie Holmes' Frond, whose curving shape suggested the Maori koru motive. (Jack Body). A sample of trans-Tasman compositional/intellectual similarities and differences, this disc is both informative and remarkably entertaining: a true cross-section of voices with an often surprising congruence of emotional content.??? (Clive O???Connell) There is space for contemplation in Leonie Holmes??? Frond, catching childhood forest fantasies in exquisite chamber music filigree??? (William Dart).

  • "is there anybody in there" and "Fragment for String Quartet" - two pieces for mixed chamber ensemble.

    Holmes, Leonie (2007)

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Two compositions for mixed chamber ensemble These two compositions for mixed chamber ensemble are the second and third in a trio of pieces on the theme of fleeting visions of the unconscious, written as companion pieces to my chamber work "Inquietude", 2003. "is there anybody in there?" was written for bassoonist Ben Hoadley for inclusion in his concert series ???New Zealand Music for Woodwind???, featuring work from New Zealand Composers, and was premiered in the Music Theatre, School of Music, University of Auckland, April 2010. Reviewed by William Dart for the New Zealand Herald, 12 April 2010: ??? Holmes made much of Messiaen-like chords underpinning willowy lines, especially effective with flute, bassoon and piano deliriously intertwining???. Is there anybody in there? was repeated later in the year at All Saints Church, Howick in a concert series entitled Thursdays @ 7, 2 September 2010, and then at the third annual New Zealand Music for Woodwind concert, St Andrews on the Terrace, Wellington 20 April 2011. "Fragment for String Quartet" was commissioned by ???The Committee??? for a concert at the Clocktower, University of Auckland, 21 September 2007, featuring the Jade Quartet, who subsequently took the work on their tour of the South Island in October/November 2007. The Jade String Quartet comprises Auckland Philharmonia members Miranda Adams, William Hanfling, Robert Ashworth and Claudia Price. The work has been recorded and broadcast by Concert FM, and has had subsequent performances by the Karlheinz Company, 4 October 2009, and student group DSCH Quartet 23 May 2010. The Karlheinz Company concert was reviewed in the NZ Herald by William Dart 16 December 2009: ???its wisps and spiralling of sound had a wonderful airiness???

  • The Breath Moved Upon the Face of the Waters

    Matthews, Stephen; Nunns, R (2008)

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Water is universally seen to symbolise the source of life, an elemental vehicle for cleansing and a facilitator of regeneration. To immerse on-self in the waters and to re-emerge without having been utterly dissolved in them . . . is to return to the well springs and regain fresh strength from that vast reservoir of the potential. A Dictionary of Symbols, Jean Chevalier and Alain Gheerbrant. The title refers to the ???face??? or surface of the water, an intersection between air and water which when breathed upon acts as a point of interchange. This metaphor of intersecting elements resonates throughout the proposed piece, for example the exchange of cross cultural references and the constant interplay between both visual and audio images. The piece drew from images, sounds and beliefs associated with the pristine fresh water site Te Waikoropupu. The piece follows on from recent work and composition processes that reference elemental and natural symbolism, for example ???The Bone Song??? and ???A moon that you could hang your coat on???. The musical texture of the electro acoustic component was primarily constructed from short edited and processed samples of close miked musical and environmental sounds amplified to create a sound world that will function like an explorative audio microscope beckoning the listener to intersect the reflective surface of the known and travel further. The intention was to enlarge the auditory perception of minute sounds using specialist sound recording techniques (in particular close miking) and sound manipulation (sound design techniques). One of the specific aims of this project was to create a bi-cultural work, a cross-cultural exchange between Maori and European traditions. The piece being site specific (a reserve and natural spring), is particularly pertinent as there is presently as intense dialogue taking place as each culture seeks to assert and redefine its own unique relationship to the land ??? whenua, the rivers, lakes and sea. The title for the project is a quote from the book of Genesis. Not only does this excerpt contain the core imagery and central metaphor of the proposed creative work, it intentionally acknowledges significant spiritual cross-cultural links in particular the employment by Nineteenth Century Maori prophets of biblical imagery in a bid to help their people survive the spreading tide of European colonialism.

  • Bruce danced if Victoria sang, and Victoria sang; so Bruce Danced, Part 1

    Kerr, Sean

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Bruce danced if Victoria sang, and Victoria sang; so Bruce danced, Part 1 covers Sean Kerr???s work through the period 2010-2000. It recognises the instability of media art, looking back to recreate previous works, exploiting the juxtaposition of past and present to illustrate potential trajectories between works. Whether delivered live in the mode of performance, completed by the active role of the viewer, upgraded to evade redundant technology, or the simple practicality of reconfiguring an installation for a new site, Kerr???s work refuses to be fixed in time through the process of a conventional retrospective. Taking place simultaneously at the Gus Fisher Gallery and Artspace, this exhibition is the first survey of Kerr???s work. One of New Zealand's leading digital artists, Kerr's interests lie in the emergent area of new media technologies, incorporating internet art, installation and sonic practices, but with a particular focus on the expectations and effects of interactivity. This often includes ill-mannered scenarios and ???misbehaving??? machines that owe as much to communication theory as slapstick comedy, exploring both social and technological dynamics. Bruce danced coincides with the launch of a new book covering Kerr???s work from the early 1990s to the present day. The 160-page publication On the Nose, published by Clouds, is out in September. This exhibition and publication is supported by a National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries (NICAI) Research Development Fund.

  • Numerology and Territories

    Speers, James

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    In a commercial setting, you don't need to read the sign to get it. It works in your peripheral vision. You see its colour. There are so many stories that come from a shade of blue or the depth of a red [...] I'm interested in that meditative moment, when you're looking at a magazine or a billboard and you're emptying your mind. You just download whatever image it is and you're not even really processing it. Auckland based artist Jim Speers' current exhibition Numerology and Territories continues his interest in appropriating the language and materials of local industry. His text based works carefully select the names of companies that make us aware of the semantic construction of a brand. VeilSide, for instance, is a company that specialises in customising body work for sports cars. The capitalisation of the 'V' and 'S' exists in the original brand. However by lifting these words out of their original context and simplifying the type, Speers places emphasis on the poetic combination of words and the way they function in an urban setting.
