The inventive, highly rhythmic percussion group From Scratch is like no other. Difficult to pigeon-hole, the group has its own characteristic Pacific-region sound, performed on a unique array of original, DIY invented instruments: PVC pipe stations, Nundrum, Sprong, tuned bells, drums, Zitherum and more.
From Scratch guide their audience through a magical journey, part sculpture, part music, part ritual. Rhythmic and instrument invention lie at the heart of From Scratch and have earned the group an international reputation for visually captivating and sonically mesmerizing performances. Their most memorable performances have been described “as among the greatest in any art form to come out of this country”. With a forty year-plus history, recently celebrated with an expansive art gallery survey exhibition, this New Zealand group is not to be missed!
