Audio Transmission seeks to extend the continuum between digital technology and te ao Māori presented by Kereama Taepa into the aural realm.
Three celebrated Māori musicians, Horomona Horo, Waimihi Hotere and Māmā Mihirangi, will fill the gallery with layered soundscapes, weaving together different elements of soundmaking, each connecting and expanding their unique methods of performing.
This will be a journey through harmony, melody and beats, incorporating taonga puoro, waiata and live loops. The artists will progressively build the aural experience to create an immersive sensory encounter.
Doors open at 6.30pm for the 7pm start time.
Horomona Horo is a composer, practitioner and cross genre collaborator, Horo fuses the traditional instruments of Māori, taonga puoro within a diverse range of cultural and musical forms.
Waimihi Hotere is a celebrated vocalist who uses sound memories to build vocal scales and soundscapes for audiences to connect with te ao Māori (a Māori perspective) and the land.
Māmā Mihirangi is known as the ‘Queen of Loops’, weaving ancient chants with intricate harmonies, traditional and contemporary instruments, beats and deep bass.
