Salmonella Dub featuring Nino by JoFF Rae

This be a brand new tune, featuring the awesome Nino Birch from Beat Rhythm Fashion.

World She Waits, is the beginnings of Salmonella Dub's 25 year celebrations.

Tune Includes; Scotty Taitoko on bone, shouts out from the Mighty Asterix, mastered by King Willy and produced by the epic Harry Bretherton.
Drums, ride, backing vocals from Dave Deakins, big phat bass in ya face from Mark Tyler and some gat chops, melodies and timemachine from Andrew P.

Driving Aunt Daisy to Meet Nino's People was the initial working title for Salmonella Dub’s 25th single World She Waits launched to radio this week to celebrate the beginnings of the bands 25th birthday.

The tune became a collaboration with Nino Birch from Beat Rhythm Fashion, the band’s choice of an influential artist to represent them at the New Zealand Music Awards this week. Unfortunately, that never was to be as Recorded Music NZ rejected Salmonella Dub’s choice stating that the ‘show producer’ had never heard of the iconic Wellington group. Because of that Beat Rhythm Fashion were deemed too obscure for the TV show demographic and Salmonella Dub stood down from accepting the offer of a ‘Legacy Award’.

Our great Aunt Daisy was of course the famous NZ radio broadcaster from the 30's to the 60's. Like the Recorded Music NZ she was a fast talking sponsor-product-placer who was seriously lacking in knowledge and content. So during our writing mahi with Nino, Aunt Daisy became a cheeky euphemism for the Recorded Music NZ ;-)

Nino’s, World She Waits lyrics were inspired by global issues, corporate greed and land right clashes both here in Aotearoa and with native American tribes affected by the Dakota oil pipeline project.

Performance Arcade 2018 - CALL FOR PROPOSALS by JoFF Rae

CALL
FOR
PROPOSALS

The Performance Arcade announces its open call to artists from New Zealand and around the world for its 2018 programme of works (23 February - 4 March). This annual exhibition and programme of events located on Wellington Waterfront is recognized as an important platform for live art, with eight successful presentations over the past six years. An assembly of shipping containers creates a series of spaces for installation, performance art, sonic art, interactive media, video-art, forums, and live music. Opening onto the bustling life of the waterfront, these sites of encounter engage the public in contemporary art and performance practices outside the familiar constraints of gallery or theatre spaces.

Proposals are now open for The Performance Arcade 2018. This can be for works located in a shipping container, in our stage space, or occupying the waterfront and city spaces. Working with a diverse range of art disciplines and perspectives, we hope to create an outstanding event that examines new ideas, alternative visions, and counter narratives for life in 2018.

PROPOSALS FOR THE PERFORMANCE ARCADE 2018 ARE DUE BY 28 JULY 2017 AT 5PM

MANIFESTO FOR A PERFORMANCE COMMUNITY

 
OUR PEOPLE – THE COMMUNITY
We are a community between – We are artists, makers, producers, and collaborators, engaging in a series of practices located somewhere between the performing and visual arts. We are the people who do not belong in the black box of the theatre or the white cube of the gallery. The place of our work is outside. We are a community of outsiders. We are active citizens of this community – We are instigators, agitators, leaders, and facilitators. We are the makers and collaborators in the formation of new experiences and new cultural values. We value ourselves, our work, and our people – We look after and support one another, developing a professional and empowered community of Live Art practitioners. We are inclusive and celebrate diversity – We support Live Art practitioners from diverse creative, disciplinary and cultural backgrounds, with varied levels of experience, providing opportunities whereby common ground may be found for collaboration and invention. We are agents of international exchange - we are committed to developing and promoting international capacity for NZ Live Art and its practitioners through facilitating networks and mentorship, platforms and opportunities; developing a strong local voice and connecting it to the world.
 
OUR PEOPLE – THE PUBLIC
We are an integral part of a wider community – Wherever a Live Art event takes place, the whole community is implicated. We aim to develop and educate audiences on Live Art practices through highly visible and well-executed events, presentations, and publications, developing co-creative and supportive audiences and communities for Live Art production. We provide opportunities for audiences – Growing new audiences for Live Art and other experimental art forms by providing opportunities for art engagement that are free or at subsidised prices. We communicate with our audience – Disseminating and promoting Live Art practices.
 
OUR PRACTICE – A VISION FOR LIVE ART
Live Art is experimental – Continuously examining and promoting new modes of presentation for the performing and visual arts. Our practice develops a culture of experimentation for both audiences and artists, where new approaches can be tested and new audiences attracted to Live Art. Live Art is challenging – It embraces risk, experimentation, challenge, and failure. Live Art is political – To work with an implicated audience, or to implicate your audience and make them a ‘participant’, is a political act. Thus live art is by its very nature is activism. To be a live artist is to be political. Live Art is not commercial –Its goals are not to generate profit or to mitigate financial risk. Therefore, the money must be separated from the art form: Live Art must be supported through funding and financial or in-kind support, but never shaped by it. Live Art is mindful – Promoting considered practices that are spatially, temporally, and socially activating. Without becoming prescriptive, it considers its impact and its responsibility. The active nature of its practice is coupled with reflective practice, turning the gaze both outward and inward.
 
OUR PLACE – THE PERFORMANCE ARCADE
The Performance Arcade is the place where our community gathers – It is the heart, the home – our marae. It is where we tell our stories, and where we create new ones. It is where we prepare for battle, and where we seek refuge. It is a safe place, created through bonds of trust, in which we can take risks and ensure the continued vitality of our practice. The Performance Arcade is an open laboratory – A platform for the application of a radical and visionary philosophy for NZ Live Arts practice. Although the Arcade community does not claim to represent the entirety of Live Art in NZ, it presents the Arcade as an exemplar of this ever-evolving movement. The Performance Arcade is like a migration – The community treks together through valleys and over mountains, labouring through loneliness and threat of exposure, experiencing moments of wonder and triumph. The travellers must be prepared for this journey, pack the necessary items, and look out for everyone in the party. The destination is always unknown – it is the heart and vision of the party that drives it ever forward.

Jen Archer, David Goldthorpe, Sally Morgan, Johann Nortje, Andrew Simpson, and Sam Trubridge

This Is Art - a venture by Ero by JoFF Rae

Ero...

"After months of negotiations I have finally manage to score a pop up studio/shop in the third largest shopping complex in Australia, the numbers are huge, 16.7 million people through per annum with approx 250,000 through each week. Highpoint shopping centre in Maribyrnong have handed me the keys to this shop space. In this space it will be a studio, shop, gallery and workshop all rolled into one. For the gallery we will have a show once a month for a week starting in February so if anyone would like to have a show or group show pm me and I will email you details. The rent will be $450 for the week with $100 being for food, advertising etc. Commission will be a pay what you think is appropriate deal. Workshops will be starting in the school holidays and if anyone has a particular workshop they would like to put on pm also. I want to run eight hour workshops broken into two four hour blocks spread out over three days with three workshops running concurrently over the three days and depending on interest ten to fifteen participants per workshop. Each participant with be charged $65 per workshop with $35 per participant going to the artist taking the workshop. If their are artisans who have products they have made I would also be interested in hearing from you. Anyone who does performance of any genre pm me. This project I am calling 'This is Art' and will be based around El lissiky's beat the whites with the red wedge. Substituting the whites with mass consumerism and the red wedge with the subculture of art. This is an idea I have been working on for a couple of years. It is about intervention in a community to see if I can affect change with art being it's principal tool."
