Elsewhere Art . . . Douglas Lilburn

The remarkable Douglas Lilburn has appeared a couple of times at Elsewhere because of his musical curiousity and willingness to move from fairly traditional classical music through a specifically nationalistic conception of New Zealand music and then making a massive break with the traditions by embarking on electronic music and the use of tape machines.

His latter work rarely gets played on radio and of course invites no interpretation because . . . well, it just is what it is.

And it isn't that easy, despite it cleaving to his life-long conception of evoking this country.

This particular collage accompanied this article.
