Silver. Stone. Wood. Bone.

Chamber Music NZ Presents

15 Oct 2021

“The truth is in our bones, for flesh decays and bone endures.” George R.R. Martin, ‘A Feast for Crows’

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 puoro researcher and artist, to weave their two musical worlds across one magical night. Western flutes and traditional Maori 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 (Ngati Ranginui, Ngai 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.
