Gig Information

Resample Tatau is an ambitious new work from award-winning creative producer and sound artist Anonymouz.

Turning his classical hip hop sampling fusion style to the ultra-personal journey of receiving his tatau (a traditional hand tapped Sāmoan tattoo), Anonymouz draws inspiration from environmental sound to build the world of his compositions.

Painfully applied from the rib cage down to the knees, Anonymouz made audio recordings of the tapping and spatial ambience of his tatau journey by the prestigious Sā Su’ā Suluape tattooing clan.

The result is a seven-movement composition accompanied by live strings and indigenous percussion set to a backdrop of video projection. Step inside the world of Resample Tatau; take a seat or sit on the fala (mat) and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of this ritualistic performance.

Building on his recent creations for award-winning dance company Black Grace and his historic opening soundscape for the New Zealand Government’s official apology to the Pasifika community for the Dawn Raids, and in collaboration with a village council and Toi Rauwhārangi Massey College of Creative Arts, Anonymouz offers up his own experience through music in response to these times.

As part of Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, 21 Feb–20 Mar 2022
