Our Wellington Music collection is currently unavailable on our catalogue due to the Central Library closure. We're working on options for making it available again and as soon as it is, we'll update this site.

We say:

Band Sensations are an experimental art sound glitterbang band who perform live approximately once a year. Band members Amos Mann, Sian Torrington and Creek Waddington describe their music as “diverse mini-atmospheres with ecologies of sound, action and words.”

Improvisation plays an important role in Band Sensations’ music, with notation used only as a starting point during performances. Sian Torrington has contrasted this with her early musical experiences, including several years of compulsory piano.

Creek Waddington also samples Band Sensations as part of their solo work, currently available on SoundCloud. Band Sensations’ latest production, ‘Free Range Harriet’, was recorded live at Pyramid Club and released in March 2017.
