151 Tauwhā

August 24, 2023

"Four stars align and give rise to a new constellation of sonic weavers, binding their respective matauranga to reveal new directions and possibilities during their ascension. Tauwhã sees the entanglement of different worlds of thought and sound, resulting in the vivid and spontaneous formation of new ones;

Salvador Brown (Aotearoa born Samoan, Gaelic, Norseman) brings an ever-expansive tapestry of puoro knowledge to the fore, cycling through different oro and playing with silence as anti-sonic material. Sione Faletau invokes the heartbeat of a new earth, sending calls across the cosmic oceans, reverberating and communicating through the many worlds their life-affirming intentions. Parks dips minds into a marbled kaleidoscope, revealing the intangible threads that bind our inner-space to outer-space. Rahana (Ngâpuhi-nui-tônu, Ngâti Whatua Kaipara, Waikato Tainui, Horana, Te Päpaka-a-Māui) stands near the pou at the centre of this swirling sonic universe, adding colour and emptiness to the puna, simultaneously filling and draining with transient rhythms and long tones." -
