About

Tomokanga is a portal into a new world that exists outside of time and physical space...a unified yet fluid world of ancient and modern combinations.

The work is predicated on the transcendental nature of the held note, its embodiment of eternity bringing about a shift in perception as used in shamanic practice in many cultures.


Commissioned note

Written with creative input from the New Zealand String Quartet, specially for the Te Ao Hou | This New World concert at the 2018 NZ Festival.
