Abstract or Summary

AN INSTRUMENTAL VOYAGE Pae Tawhiti, Pae Tata NZSO LIVE AT HOME - COVID RESPONSE; This moving work is an orchestral journey through the history of Aotearoa New Zealand from pre-European times. Performed in three movements, it was recorded in 2019 as part of Tuia Encounters 250 and features the NZSO, taonga pūoro specialist Horomona Horo, singer Maisey Rika and the piece’s composer Jeremy Mayall on electronics. This work, created as part of the Tuia 250 projects, represents an abstract interpretation of our history as a nation and the interweaving between two cultures. Compositionally based upon the title of “An Instrumental Voyage”, this project sees the continued development and exploration of a creative partnership between Horomona Horo and myself. This collaboration is a creative conversation between styles, sounds and space. “An Instrumental Voyage” tells a story, but ultimate leaves us working towards an aspirational future where we can build together towards a new future. The subtitle 'Pae Tawhiti, Pae Tata' talks about reaching for distant goals, by making a journey of individual steps - this is how we interpret an instrumental voyage. Composed for the NZSO. Approx 55mins for orchestra, voices and taonga puoro
