On Wednesday afternoons clashing irregular rhythms, squealing electronics, and chaotic crooning can be heard wafting across Fowlds Park in Auckland. Its the sound of the Māpura Studios Creative Music Programme. The group will make its live debut concert at The Cupid Bar in Point Chevalier on Saturday 9 November and anything could happen!
Facilitated by Stefan Neville, participants create soundscapes and alternate reality classic hits using old keyboards, percussion, ukuleles, effects pedals and anything that can make a noise. The approach is spontaneous and immersive. The group utilises gut instinct expression and natural ability to create an environment where anyone can contribute and any sound can be considered music. There are no such things as wrong notes or mistakes.
The group has a bandcamp webpage to share their recordings and were recently included on a double LP compilation of international experimental music being made by people living with disabilities called "We Are The World". This was released by the Paris record label Sonic Protest.
