Auckland Arts Festival and Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery present a survey exhibition on the sonic innovations and invented instruments of renowned avant-garde ensemble From Scratch, including six performances by the latest incarnation of the group.

Formed in 1974, From Scratch have performed to wide acclaim around the world with their distinctive invented instruments.

Their timeless works span art, music, performance and film, inspired by an egalitarian approach to working, and with strong connections to the sounds, cycles and geological rhythms of their home in Aotearoa and the Pacific.

The group’s much anticipated return includes an interactive survey exhibition and concert series fuelled with fresh directions and surprises.
