Trambience 2009:

Images from Trambience Feb 28 and March 1 here

February 28, 6-7pm
March 1, 2-4pm

Trambience transforms a Christchurch Tram carriage into a small mobile music venue, in which the audience and performers trundle together through the city streets. From inside the tram musicians create an improvised soundtrack that blends with the sounds of the streets outside and the rumbling and rattling of the tram itself. Trambience is a celebration of the shared journeys of public transport. It transforms the familiar private rituals of listening to music on headphones or car stereos into a communal audio experience.

There will be two Trambience performances in February / March 2009, featuring:
Hot Solder (homemade analogue synthesizers), Grunge Genesis (inspirational gangsta folk), and Greg Malcolm (environmental duets)
