The ancient tonalities of taonga pūoro find themselves in yet another challenging contemporary setting. Marilyn Crispell and Jeff Henderson weave a beautiful array of sonic textures and nuances around the evocative sounds of Richard Nunns.

Richard and Jeff have restless musical personalities, and over the years have sought a wide and varied range of collaborators – and collaborative environments. They previously worked with Marilyn on the Urban Taniwha touring project, so this project is the outcome of a longstanding musical relationship. Since he first met and performed with Marilyn, Richard has longed for an opportunity to record just such a project as this. In many respects, his earlier Rattle recording with Judy Bailey and Steve Garden (Tūhonohono, RAT-D011) was, while very different in outcome, a precursor to This Appearing World.

The adventurous listener will relish the invitation to explore the intriguing sonic environments on offer here, a world in which an infinite array of sound-making possibilities are judiciously selected in response to the sometimes fleeting intimations of all three musicians. While freeform improvisation is a long-standing musical practice, the use of taongo pūoro is rare, and Richard is the sole world exponent. The music on This Appearing World is unique to New Zealand.
