60x60: Wellington welcomes New Music's fastest-ticking clock

60x60 was initiated in 2003 and his since grown into one of the planet’s most coveted contemporary music events. This year alone, the project received over 2500 submissions from a staggering 50 countries. Because the piece is stylistically diverse and eclectic by default, its success can be explained by the sheer wealth of different approaches on display and its capacity of organically integrating them underneath the roof of “New music”.

It is important to note that there is not one definitive version of the piece, as different regional mixes cohabitate with the all-encompassing international mix. The event in Wellington, for example, will premiere the Pacific-Rim mix and feature live contributions by Birdcatcher (Antony Milton and Bill Wood) as well as Harry Rama with Chris Barama (Jeff Henderson group).

The New Zealand rendition of 60x60 is set to start at 8pm.
