New Orchestra Practices from France to Auckland

While it is too late to join this orchestra, it looks like an amazing project worth checking out:

The New Orchestra Practices (NOP) group have been working on an audiovisual composition with music-minded amateurs and artists, using joysticks to control soundscapes. They will be performing their work on before the France – New Zealand rugby game this Saturday, 24 September at Auckland’s waterfront.

The concept involves gathering people from different ethnic backgrounds, music abilities, ages and social classes to collectively play sound and visual parts.

This inter-arts orchestra will perform pieces from both France and New Zealand. NOP.nz’s main goal is to bring together various audiences, cultures and artistic practices. NOP.nz Project began in New Zealand in April 2011. The project will return to France in 2012.
