During his 2016 summer residency at Headlands Centre for the Arts (Sausalito, California, USA), Auckland based artist/musician & instrument builder Phil Dadson converted an old, wooden ex-US Military store –building 961– into a sonic play-space, an expansive instrument with multiple voices that he worked and performed in, solo and collaboratively.

This exhibition presents video/audio documentation of solo performances in 961 with wall and floor-wires, rods, the ‘rocker’ (an adapted rocking chair), ‘ring-rung’ (an adapted ladder), a range of his invented instruments; Gloop spring-string-drum, song/stones, gliss-flutes etc, plus a set of visual-music graphics including a poster co-designed with Berlin based artist/friend Gwenaël Rattke, screen printed in Berlin by Rattke especially for the show.

Also included are collaborative performances with Japanese sound-artist Aki Onda, and San Francisco based duo Music for Hard Times (Tom Nunn and ex-Aucklander Paul Winstanley).

The Headlands Residency is made possible courtesy of the James Wallace Arts Trust & Fulbright NZ.

Dadson is represented by Trish Clark Gallery, Auckland.
