Silver. Stone. Wood. Bone. weaves soundscapes and landscapes together into a haunting multi-sensory tapestry of music and moving image.

Bridget Douglas, principal flute in the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra joins with Alistair Fraser, renowned taonga pūoro researcher and artist, to weave their two musical worlds across one magical night. Western flutes and traditional Māori instruments come together in both celebrated and new pieces by New Zealand composers including John Psathas, Gillian Whitehead and Gareth Farr.

Rounding out the collaboration, the performance is set against the striking backdrop of a specially commissioned video work by visual artist Bridget Reweti (Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāi Te Rangi), illustrating our country’s unique landscapes that have literally shaped the sounds of these instruments over generations.

Silver, stone, wood, bone. Enduring materials that weather the storm. Beaten, hollowed carved, and polished to sing songs of the past and breathe life into the future. This is music of and for Aotearoa.
