A Kauri Cries

About Project

Kauri trees of New Zealand face an epidemic; Kaurie Dieback. The disease causes kauri to die silently, weeping gum from its trunk.

Working with Tom Cosm, a Digital Audio Technician, we developed a plugin using the software MAX for Live, which allowed us to turn the mass, brightness and colour intensity of the kauri's bleeding into a musical score.

This score was performed by members of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra giving the kauri a way to communicate the pain and peril they are in - and no longer suffering in silence.
