A Score to Scratch the Surface @ The Unconformity Festival


  • The Paragon Theatre 11 McNamara Street Queenstown Australia (map)

A Score to Scratch the Surface (Opening Scene).

Be taken on a journey in which Queenstown's myths and realities slowly merge with the landscape, as you are driven through this place. Starting in the dress circle of the 1930s Paragon cinema and finishing at a table in the foyer cafe, A Score to Scratch the Surface (Opening Scene) is a roaming sound work composed of local field recordings, archival sounds and fragments of stories reflecting the diverse threads that link people to an environment.

A Score to Scratch the Surface (Title Sequence)

A series of field recordings taken from points along the road between Nelson Falls and Queenstown becomes a soundtrack to accompany your drive. A Score to Scratch the Surface (Title Sequence) is a contemplation of what it means to be in place, to meander, and to be still. Download the score from The Unconformity website and press play as you hit Nelson Falls on the way from Hobart to Queenstown.
