Multimedia music

With the release of the ‘Flutter’ video, I have had people ask me what my next performance piece will be… at the moment I am unsure. We shall see what comes up.
But in the meantime, I thought it might be good to revisit some of the multi-media performance projects I have put together, and collect them all in one place. Here.

There were a couple of earlier pieces, but unfortunately they were not recorded. They will have to remain lost in the ether.

He korokoro tūī (remix)

At the end of last year I had the opportunity to create a soundscape for a new contemporary dance work “Whenua” by Karen Barbour.

The work was premiered at a conference at Waikato University.

In the recording and creation of this piece I had the privilege of working with Alistair Fraser playing his selection of taonga puoro. We recorded his parts at the University of Otago Music Department Albany Street Studios with Stephen Stedman.

Have a listen to an edited remix version of the piece below:

The Song of Kauri

It is my pleasure to finally share the audio of my musical interpretation of ‘The Song of Kauri‘ by Melinda Szymanik.

There is a audio only version with narration by the author, as well as a video version showing the beautiful illustrations by Dominique Ford. Links are below:

The Song of Kauri

I have had the absolute pleasure of writing some music to accompany the new children’s book by Melinda Syzmanik‘The Song of the Kauri’.

This is a beautiful story. Definitely a book worth picking up and sharing with your kids!

I will share the music after the official launch of the book on August 1st! All are welcome to attend the launch at the Dunedin Public Library. Details below:
