New Directions for Frykberg

Let the Art Sing is a group of professional musicians who play a range of instruments from classical to indigenous to electronic, and come together under Susan’s direction to create structured improvisation around high quality art. The philosophy of Let the Art Sing is quite simply to  reveal the ‘songs’ of both the building in which the art is shown, and the artworks that are  there. Let The Art Sing’s first performance was at the Govett-Brewster, New Plymouth NZ in May 2010 and continues this year in various galleries in NZ. The following interview describes the first performance.
