Abstract or Summary

Composition for Taonga Puoro and Electronics by Jeremy Mayall and Horomona Horo. Commissioned by the One Victoria Trust for The Meteor Theatre. On Friday 21st July, The Meteor theatre was officially relaunched. As part of the relaunch there was a dawn powhiri and sponsor/supporters evening - at both of these events, a new composition was performed. The composition 'Te Aho Mai o Kōtiritiri' was composed specifically for the event and for the space by Media Arts tutor and researcher Dr. Jeremy Mayall and Horomona Horo. This piece, 'Te Aho Mai o Kōtiritiri' is a composition created for this space. The title translates to mean 'The Shining Meteor'. Many of the sounds within the piece are taken from electromagnetic recordings of the radiation of the various celestial bodies (planets etc) in our galaxy. These are combined with recordings from the various manned and unmanned spacecraft that humans have sent out from this earth. This is fused in performance with taonga puoro – the voices of this land, to create a sonic experience where these worlds can truly embrace one another. The composition aims to work as an artistic reflection of the possibilities for the space, and its intentions for the community. There are plans to record this work for future release.
