Silver Stone Wood Bone
Friday 14 April | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
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, taoka 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 John Psathas, Gillian Whitehead, Gareth Farr, Rosie Langabeer and Josiah Carr.
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 is a one-hour concert, which toured nationally with Chamber Music NZ and was recorded and released on Rattle Records in 2021 and was a 2022 Classical Artist of The Year finalist.
FREE Doors open at 5.30pm, performance from 6pm, Friday 14 April
