Topic: Artists Prepare: Chris Cree Brown

Recommended Posts

This series features Performing artists developing works for performance. Emphasis is placed on the evolutionary process of an idea, the experimental stage, the possibilities that are discarded in the final shaping of the work. Also explored are the feelings of the artists towards their work, and the medium in which it is to be presented. Ideas generate before the camera - nothing is rehearsed.

Artists Prepare was an NFU series that featured prominent performance-based artists of the time. In this episode 'sonic artist' Chris Cree Brown, discusses composing with new media and how he orchestrates particular sounds into formal compositional structures. Some sounds are made instrumentally, while others are recorded from his environment. In 1980 few classically-trained musicians in New Zealand experimented with synthesized sound and the gloriously large and sturdy equipment Brown uses to create his music will be of sure anthropological interest to many musos.
