There is something about the creative process that remains amorphous to me. As I write this, Dunedin is in the midst of DWRF 2017 (Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival), a week that is all about creative spirit and the power of the written word. I stand on the awkward eve of explaining to a room Read more...

Basically Baroque

Posted 12:54pm Sunday 21st May 2017 by Ihlara McIndoe

Kicking off the first of the 2017 Matinee series on the 29 April, Dunedin Symphony Orchestra’s Basically Baroque concert was certainly a hit. So often it takes an orchestra a while to settle into Bach, but the Concerto for Violin and Oboe was precise and enthralling right from the get-go. Read more...

In the depths of Refuel at 1am Zac Nicholls of fuzz-rock group Koizilla gleefully chimed to a loyal and hazy crowd “we have two songs left, and then Feastock is over.” Koizilla brought the curtain down on the ninth installment of what has become a centerpiece of the Dunedin music Read more...
