Ngo Rongo O te Mauri Installation

This collaboration by West Auckland artisans brings together art, sound and storytelling. The sounds of nature; the running streams, birdlife and wind are combined with Taonga puoro (traditional māori instruments) that have been recorded by renowned master Riki Bennett. These recordings have been set into three 'hue' which have been hand crafted and designed to play as people are drawn to the to story board.
