Erewhon Calling: experimental sound in New Zealand \r\nis a lavishly-illustrated new publication from the \r\nAudio Foundation and CMR. It is a survey of how \r\na bunch of antipodean misfits and malcontents \r\nhave forged new ways and new reasons to make \r\nnoise, here at the end of the earth. Edited by Bruce \r\nRussell (the Dead C.), in association with Richard \r\nFrancis and Zoe Drayton; the aim of this volume \r\nis to survey the full range of non-standard audio \r\npractices in contemporary NZ culture. The books \r\nremit runs from the borders of composed art \r\nmusic, through improvised noise, to deconstructed \r\nrockn pop filth; and every genre, every scene, \r\nevery permutation of unconventional audio practice \r\nin-between. The aim is not to be comprehensive \r\n(there is literally too much vitality and diversity for \r\nany book!). The hope is to throw a good handful of \r\ngravel into the pool. While not every eel will have \r\nbeen hit, the surface will have been rippled from \r\nshore to shore, which is more than anyone else has \r\neven attempted before. \r\n Erewhon Calling makes room for many voices, \r\nallowing multiple and possibly conflicting voices \r\nand points of view. A range of artists and informed \r\ncommentators mainly tell their own stories, describe \r\ntheir own work, and outline their own goals in \r\nworking on the fringes of audio culture. The readers \r\nof this important new source book will be able to \r\ndiscern their own meanings and make their own \r\nconnections from this thought-provoking and unique publication. - CMR.\r\n
