As a bit of creative fun I decided to create a piece using some taonga puoro recordings I had made with Alistair Fraser. I listened through the recordings, and then started to create a piano piece that would allow Alistairs musical gestures to flow naturally and create a sense of balance between the taonga puoro and the ‘western’ musical parts.

The picture is from the trek in the Himalayas – a path leading down to Namche Bazaar. It seemed appropriate for the feel of the piece.

You can listen to that track here:
