Overview

Decoding the composition
Back to Music Search

Very little information exists for this piece. It was written for the 20th birthday celebrations for the Composer’s Association of New Zealand (CANZ). An event called ExtravaCANZa. The piece was premiered at Wellington’s town hall by members of Strike and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra during the ExtravaCANZa concert weekend, 4-6 Nov 1994.

The Wellington festival included the open-air concert CANZdemonium, held in Civic Square.

I’ve managed to find a recording of the original MIDI (which was created on very old technology - Studio VIsion sequencer, and Proteus sample player).
