The voices of the taoka tāwhito (ancient treasures) in theses compositions are from taoka pūoro that reside in the collection of Okain’s Bay Māori and Colonial Museum, Banks Peninsula. Thanks to Murray Thacker for his support with this project. CD’s can be bought from Okains Bay Māori and Colonial Museum.



In 2011 Alistair held a Wild Creations Artist Residency (CNZ DoC) at Masons Bay, Rakiura/Stewart Island where he researched and created taoka pūoro from the environment based on research of taoka from Murihiku and surrounds. He produced an album of music and touring exhibition.
