Aotearoa has a long history of sonic experimentation: From the electronic bleeps and drones of Douglas Lilburn in the 1960s to Phil Dadson’s homemade instruments of the 80s; The Dead C’s wall of noisy guitars, and Jeff Henderson’s many and varied collaborations.
Zombies on the Horizon is a new exhibition at the Alexander Turnbull Library which connects the dots between these audio adventurers.
