Trambience - Wellington, NZ

Trambience transforms a Christchurch Tram carriage into a small mobile music venue, in which the audience and performers trundle together through the city streets. From inside the tram musicians create an improvised soundtrack that blends with the sounds of the streets outside and the rumbling and rattling of the tram itself. Trambience is a celebration of the shared journeys of public transport. It transforms the familiar private rituals of listening to music on headphones or car stereos into a communal audio experience. Come for a free ride on the Christchurch Tram accompanied by the sounds of Hot Solder, Grunge Genesis, and Greg Malcolm... February 28 and March 1 - read more or visit for details
