Audio Foundation is pleased to announce the New Zealand premiere of ‘Prelude to a Requiem’, alongside a new, untitled work by audio-visual artist Flo Wilson.

Flo Wilson’s (NZ) installation work, ‘Prelude to a Requiem’, uses sound and video projection to illustrate the liminal headspace that a person enters when he or she prepares to grieve. Wilson’s work is a preemptive trace which vacillates between acts of love and futility.

As her immersive installation slowly builds up into an ambient embrace, her piece asks us how different technologies extend or reduce our modes of being when we grieve. Wilson offers this work and space for people to attune to themselves, the world, and process grief alongside her.

Flo Wilson is a composer, producer and artist based in Tāmaki Makaurau/ Auckland, Aotearoa/ New Zealand whose organic, experimental music creates emotive atmospheres to facilitate shared listening experiences. Her interests in music and art stem from computer music, embodied performance, spatial design and immersive installations.

Her work has been shown and performed at NIME (USA), ACMC (AUS), The Dowse (NZ), and the Adam Art Gallery (NZ), as well as performed new works for the New Zealand School of Dance for the Choreographic Season. Following performances and work at the Audacious Festival of Sonic Arts in Christchurch, Flo was co-artist in residence with Olivia Webb for the Toi Pōneke/ Te Kōkī Sound Art Residency 2017/2018 and has released her debut EP ‘(Please) Keep Breathing’.

She holds a Bachelor of Music (Hons) in Sonic Arts from Te Kōkī - New Zealand School of Music.
