Last year's Sonic Circus is succeeded this year by an even more preposterous & unpredictable assemblage of events, performances, presentations. Sonic 2 will include performances by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and a work using a Balinese gamelan orchestra; a string-gut and cow-bladder musical assemblage, ceramic bells trumpets and drums; theatre pieces; slide protection as a basis for sound improvisation, and a great deal more. Not only composers and musicians, but potters, painters, poets, playwrights participating. Unprecedented!

Sonic 2 happens in the Wellington Town Hall, Concert Chamber & in various venues round & about the Town Hall, from 7.00 to 11.30 on the evening of 11.30 on the evening of Saturday March 8th. No admission charge. Wear soft shoes.

Split ENZ, New Zealand's No. I contemporary rock theatre ensemble will be playing in the Union Building, Wednesday 5 March at 8.30 pm. This is the band who recently has been compared with many international artists including Genesis, King Crimson and Roxy Music.

Hot Licks named them the best New Zealand band of 1974 and raved about their Auckland concerts. Everyone who saw them at the Opera House last year raved too.

This concert is the first to be staged by the New Zealand Students' Arts Council in 1975 following the formation of their national campus circuit. The circuit consists of all universities and teachers' colleges, each receiving six national tours on a regular basis during the academic year. The presentation of first class entertainment for students, is the rationale on which the circuit is based. As Split ENZ are widely regarded as the finest concert musicians in New Zealand, playing original music, the council regards the group as a fine opener.

Go to it.
