Techno Echo is a monthly event curated to share knowledge around sound & light technology. Featuring special micro performances and demonstrations by local artists/musicians followed by time for kōrero and connection.

Techno Echo occurs every 1st Monday of the month 7-9pm

This month’s special guest Ru Hunter has been an active member of the Te Whanganui-a-Tara music scene since the early 2000s, and they’ve drifted in and out of projects and collaborations and performed under various solo monikers for many years, and have released music ranging from abrasive political punk to ambient, noise, alternative pop, and industrial hardcore.

They currently perform as the bassist for anarcho-hardcore band, Unsanitary Napkin, and their more recent projects include the digital-hardcore influenced Displeasure, and the alternative dream pop of Varda (with Alison O’Reilly). Primarily a guitar player, their practice has never found a steady home in one single style or genre, and they often utilise analog and software synthesisers, drum machines, samples, and guitar pedals to aid in composition and push the limitations of their instrument. They have performed in festivals at home and abroad, including Newtown Festival, Cuba Dupa, Whammyfest, Camp a Low Hum, NOW, PunkFest, Such Is Life in so-called Australia, and recently returned from a three week tour of Japan with Unsanitary Napkin.

They believe that finding compassionate communities of like-minded musicians, and connecting over experience, knowledge, and passion is fundamental to their creative work, and that community-building is something that can facilitate both joy and struggle.

This is an all ages, inclusive event for women and gender minorities to learn and share about audio and visual practises and technology in a supportive and casual environment. We are offering space to nurture friendship and collaboration within our community through celebratory exploration of creative tools.
