From Scratch – Songs for Heroes – free online New Zealand music

On Songs for Heroes the From Scratch ensemble play instruments including zitherum, PVC pipes & drum station, soprano saxophone, vocals,  piano-horn, piano horn, tone trees and bass drum. And some handclapping.

From Scratch have developed an original performance style which combines ritual, theatre, sculpture, and the handmade melodic percussion instruments of founder Philip Dadson.  All this makes for a richly textured soundscape.

This album (and over 52,000 more) is available online for free from anywhere with your library card number and PIN.

For New Zealand Music Month we are featuring a daily dose of free online New Zealand music from Naxos Music Library and the Source.

South Learning Centre Term 1 highlights

South Learning Centre’s eBook Club students are still buzzing with all their Random Acts Of Kindness activities throughout the term.

They created bookmarks with inspirational messages and secretly placed them into random books around South Library just to make customers smile.

Little chocolate gifts were given to strangers to brighten their days and a book drive resulted in over 200 books, book voucher and gifts (watches, t-shirts and diaries), which were donated to a local low decile primary school.
