Rory Dalley Residency Event

Tags group

Experience the culminating work of sonic artist Rory Dalley (aka IRD)'s late-January Pyramid Club residency.

Tapes, sounds, silences and places... come experience an afternoon of transported sounds, blending the live with the recent past. An afternoon offsite event at Tanera Park, featuring Rory Dalley (plus a few potential special guests) utilising found sound materials and recordings made in the area across the residency. These recordings are treated with electromagnetic interference reflecting the shared/overlapping spaces of the surroundings.

Rory Dalley aka IRD is a sonic artist and improvisor based in Ōtautahi Chch with a particular interest in textural noise and concepts of quietness. Rory’s practice involves cassette manipulations, deconstructed turntable mechanisations, unusual percussive combinations or other sound sources natural or repurposed, such as unused blank cassette tape, or the dry contact of everyday objects.
