Pyramid Club is proud to present Pūoro Tū, a festival of adventures in Māori instruments and sound. Bringing together many of Aotearoa's leading and emerging voices in taonga pūoro (traditional Māori musical instruments), the festival is a celebration of this tradition and a forum to forge new pathways with ancient knowledge and taonga.

Because of Covid restrictions, many events will be taking place offsite from Pyramid Club. If we need to adapt the programme due to changing Covid alert levels, these will be posted through Pyramid Club's facebook page and website www.pyramidclub.org.nz


Rātapu – Sunday 21/11
2-4:30pm Found Sound at Te Kopahou Reserve [free]

Sound Foraging workshop and sound installation opening.

Join us from 2-4pm for a Sound Foraging Workshop at the foreshore area at the Te Kopahou Visitor Centre. Explore the voices of Te Taiao and the voices of materials found within this area. Gather traditional and non-traditional sound making materials and investigate playing techniques. All taonga gathered within the boundary of Tapu te Ranga Marine Reserve will be returned to where they are found.

The untamed coastal area surrounding Pariwhero/Red Rocks was the site of early Māori settlement, a droving route for cattle, and more recently a quarry. Exposed rock faces and Te Hape Stream provide unique acoustic echoes for players to explore.

The workshop will be lead by Sam Palmer, a regular facilitator of taonga pūoro wānanga that focus on making the instruments accessible to all people.

At 4pm we will unveil a new site-specific sound installation at Te Kopahou Visitor Centre. Sound artists and Pūoro Tū curators Daniel Beban, Alistair Fraser and Ruby Solly have teamed up to create the installation, an 8-channel, spatialised work featuring environmental recordings from the Pariwhero/Red Rocks coastal area.
