Seaward Moments

About a month ago I drove down to Invercargill to record in the Seaward Bush Reserve with woodwind maestro Adam Page.

The recordings are part of a new album I am working on, to be released later in the year, but as part of the recording we did an extra track that is now available to listen to.

Adam is playing a bansuri on this recording with some extra electronic manipulation… but the performance is as it was. This is about capturing a specific moment in time, a moment in space – a conversation with the landscape.

Here is the video:

Imaginary Communication No.5

Am in the midst of working on a new cross-disciplinary multimedia piece for the Sir Edmund Hillary Programme to be premiered at an event in August. Slowly managing to convert ideas from the poem into musical arrangements to get things ready for when the rehearsals start.

While I continue working on that, here is a recent piece. Another in the ‘Imaginary Communications’ series I have been working on throughout my time as the Mozart Fellow.
This edition also has a video accompaniment filmed during sunrise near Taiaroa Head on the Otago Peninsula.
