Chris Cree Brown: Seminar & Concert, 29 April 2015

(Please note that this seminar is in GH3.54 instead of CL0.19)

Chris Cree Brown (University of Canterbury, NZ), will be visiting MTI on Wednesday the 29 April 2015 to deliver a seminar and concert of his work Pilgrimage to Gallipoli.

Chris Cree Brown's visit will have two parts:

13.00-14.30 – Gateway House Room GH3.54A talk on the origins and ideas behind the work

16.00-17.30 – PACE Building, Studio 1, Richmond Street : A performance of Pilgrimage to Gallipoli


ANZAC (‘Australia and New Zealand Army Corps’) day is celebrated on the 25th April each year, the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings in 1915 during the First World War. This year is thus the centenary. In 2008 the New Zealand composer Chris Cree Brown completed a dramatic radiophonic work which bears witness to these events – it can be performed over a loudspeaker system in a concert hall as will be the case when the composer visits DMU on Wednesday 29th April. Pilgrimage to Gallipoli is an extensive radiophonic work of 85 minutes in two parts. It is the result of more than 14 years of research, audio recordings, and compilation. The work includes recordings Chris made during visits to ANZAC day commemorations at ANZAC cove in 1994 and 2000, along with interviews, site-specific recordings and historic sonic material. His sabbatical leave in 2008 allowed him sufficient space and time essential to compiling this creative response to one of this country’s defining events.


Chris Cree Brown is an Associate Professor at the School of Music, University of Canterbury, New Zealand. His main interests include conventional instrumental composition, electroacoustic and computer music, and inter-media art. He has twice been awarded the Mozart Fellowship at the University of Otago, has twice been appointed Composer-in-Schools and has written a number of film scores. Along with Icescape, for orchestra, is an electro-acoustic work, Under Erebus that were a result of his trip to Antarctica under the Artists to Antarctica programme run under the auspices of Antarctic New Zealand and with the assistance of Creative New Zealand. He has a strong interest in musical sculptures, and his Aeolian harps were exhibited in 2002 in the Christchurch Botanical gardens as part of the Art and Industry Scape Biennale. Chris was awarded the KBB/CANZ citation for services to New Zealand Music in 2010. His work has been performed in many countries, including Australia, UK, Finland, Hungary, France, Germany, Canada, Portugal, Russia, USA.

Signaling and navigating in the underwater world presents challenges for traditional approaches such as radio waves and light. Both are readily absorbed in water. Light also tends to scatter and reflect over short distances. Sound waves are much more adaptable to use in this world. While they also present challenges – especially absorption and reflection – they can be used effectively over much greater distances in the order of kilometers.
