The compositions on this album were performed on keyboards, modular synths, drums, trumpet, pūtōrino, ocarina and cello. They are also fused with ambient field recordings from the tracks composed in the caves of the Waitakere Ranges. The music was developed and produced for the dance work TOMO, a collaboration with my dear friend and choreographer Gabriel Thomas, and produced by Atamira Dance Company.

TOMO transcends into a dream space of endless time, woven together by the tupuna (ancestors) before them, as two wairua (spirits) cross between realms. Their mother holds the power of creation and carries within her the gateway to the world of light. She is a daughter, a sister and a mother in tapu (sacred). Her sacred belly is the house in which these wairua come into being. One departs to the world of the living; the other enters the embracing arms of the long night.
