Au­dain launches an al­bum

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

A com­poser who has worked with some of the coun­try’s most pres­ti­gious or­ches­tras has re­leased a col­lec­tion of her own works.

Yvette Au­dain’s mu­sic has been per­formed in New Zealand as well as in Aus­tralia, Ja­pan and the United States.

She has com­posed and ar­ranged pieces for the Auck­land Phil­har­mo­nia and plays full­time with the Royal New Zealand Navy Band.

Now Au­dain is re­leas­ing Grooves Un­spo­ken, a col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal pieces on which she plays the clar­inet, sax­o­phone, recorder and Ir­ish whis­tle.

The Auck­lan­der was part of the APO’s Grad­u­ate Com­posers Work­shop in 2010. Her work, Eu­logy, was pre­miered in the 2011 Works With Words pro­gramme, in as­so­ci­a­tion with the Writ­ers and Read­ers Fes­ti­val.

The ‘‘eclec­tic’’ works on Grooves Un­spo­ken range from clas­si­cal to jazz, she says.

Au­dain is host­ing an al­bum re­lease party on Au­gust 30 from 7.30pm at Cafe One 2 One on Pon­sonby Rd. En­try is by koha. The hour-long show will be fol­lowed by a sign­ing where copies of her al­bum can be bought for $20.
