Traditional New Zealand Mäori Instruments, Composition and Digital Technology: Some recent collaborations and processes

2005

Organised Sound: Vol. 10 no. 1. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press: 57-65.

This paper examines the integration of traditional New Zealand Mäori instruments with digital music technology, and the use of these instruments in making new works. The focus is on the work of performer/composers Hirini Melbourne and Richard Nunns, as well as recent collaborations that Richard Nunns has undertaken with some composers and musicians in genres other than Mäori music. Aesthetic, practical and cultural considerations in the composition process are explored.
