Music composed by Bob Bickerton, Ariana Tikao, Holly Tikao-Weir, Solomon Rahui, Charisma Rangipunga and Paulette Tamati-Elliffe.

The purpose of the music which accompanies the video is to enhance and support the kaupapa of the exhibition. We have created a soundscape which responds to and reflects the wonderful imagery by Robin and Brian. The soundscape features vocals by Ariana Tikao, Holly Tikao-Weir and Solomon Rahui with taonga puoro played by them and Bob Bickerton. Some of the lyrics were composed specifically for the project, others have been chosen because their kupu talk so closely to the stories held within the imagery.
