Tristan Carter: Tohoraha - ...Embedded video
See details ➔
Tristan Carter's Tohoraha dwells on the primacy of sound in the lives of whales. This semi-improvisational work is scored for string quintet and taonga pūoro.
Tristan writes, "The preparation of this piece was an exploration of this unique auditory world, beginning with listening to underwater recordings of whales, finding those voices on our instruments, and responding to each other's improvisations."
