Inaugural Waikato Artist in Residence

Inaugural Waikato Artist in Residence

We are proud to announce our inaugural Waikato Artist in Resident is composer/producer/artist Dr Jeremy Mayall.

Dr Mayall will be working with the Wallace Gallery Morrinsville team over the coming months to present it's first Waikato Artist in Residence project in March 2018.

Dr. Jeremy Mayall is a composer/producer/performer/artist based in Hamilton, NZ. He works primarily in music, sound art, installation and multimedia formats, with a focus on exploring his fascination in the interrelationships between sound, time, space, the senses, and the human experience.

He is excited by the process of collaboration and recent projects have included work with musicians, dancers, poets, aerial silks performers, theatre practitioners, scientists, perfumers, bakers, authors, sculptors, filmmakers, pyrotechnicians, lighting designers and visual artists.

He holds a composition doctorate from Waikato Univeristy, and is currently Lecturer in Music and Research Leader at the School of Media Arts, Wintec. He was recipient of the 2014 and 2015 Mozart Fellowship.

Some of his more recent works include:


PLUNGE was an immersive experience where new sonic artworks are further activated by connecting to other stimulus receptors. This is a very intimate exhibition, which requires the audience to become part of the artwork.
Each piece stimulates different senses and explores ideas of perception and the fluctuating human experience of time. Each work features a sound element created by Jeremy Mayall, which has been paired with collaborators in different fields: Dan Inglis and James Sutherland (moving image); Paul Bradley (visual art); Jamieson Hudson (baking/design); Demeter Fragrance Library (perfume). Along with the skilled support of specialist craftsman/artists/technicians Tony Nicholls, Owen Mayall and Brad Morgan to help construct each experience.

The inspiration for PLUNGE came from the concept that none of our senses work in isolation, and that they are deeply interconnected and influential on one another. The works explore an ever changing thread of consciousness where you begin to notice the way that your brain shifts perceptions between our internal and external worlds. These works create a state that engages the brains own tendency to build worlds, find patterns and make connections, allowing the multi-sensory experience to provided a heightened sense of engagement with each work.

'GLIMPSE' - A live audio-visual experience.
‘Glimpse’ is a new multi-media artwork incorporating live music, projected video, and soundscape created by filmmaker Dan Inglis and composer Dr. Jeremy Mayall. This innovative new piece combining experimental film concepts and contemporary art music blurs the line between conventional cinema and pure concert music.

The work is a suite of 29 individual but intertwined audio-visual vignettes. Film footage appropriated from The British Council Film Collection of short documentaries is reedited, reimagined, and recontextualised by Inglis and paired with original piano preludes and soundscapes by Mayall creating a wholly new performance work where the music informs the image, and the image informs the music.
