Audio Foundation is proud to present: Mette Rasmussen (Denmark)


Danish saxophonist Mette Rasmussen is a vital exponent of a new wave of extreme instrumental improvisers. From crackling re spitting shards to delicate wisps of hazy light – her music is razor sharp, volatile and deeply textured. Rasmussen works on exploring the natural rawness of her instrument – experimenting on what the saxophone is capable of in sound and expression, with and without preparations.

Currently resident in Norway she is much in demand, and has performed with such avant legends as Alan Silva, Chris Corsano, Mats Gustafsson, Paul Lovens, Paul Lytton and with her Trio Riot group with Sam Andreae and David Meier.


Visiting Aotearoa for the first time, Mette Rasmussen plays solo and in collaboration with local musicians in Auckland and Wellington.

Thurs 18 Jan, 6.00pm – Parnell Train Station Underpass Tunnel, with The Doll, Taekyung Seo/Rui Inaba (koha)
Fri 19 Jan, 8.00pm – Audio Foundation, with Snouts + The Unknown Rockstar

Sat 20 Jan, 8.00pm – St Mary of the Angels Church, Boulcott St with Dick Whyte, Kieran Monaghan and Noel Meek, presented by End of the Alphabet Records
