Extracting the audio waveform from a video (of the singers) gave me frequencies that ranged from low, medium, and high. These frequencies are represented in a digital form of sound waves and are seen when the singers are singing. The human spirit, through the voices, drive the kupesi (patterns) to connect and disconnect, giving rise to new kupesi every time.
An audio recording of Waitemata Harbour is used to generate visual kupesi (Tongan patterns).
A song commemorating survivors of the 1962 Tuaikaepau shipwreck is rendered visually as a vivid kupesi (Tongan patterns).
Recorded sound from Auckland's CBD is transformed into kupesi (pattern).
Ongo (sounds) from Manukau Heads lighthouse and Whatipu beach generate vivid kupesi (Tongan patterns).
Sound is not static, it moves in waves and into the flickering, morphing kupesi patterns of Sione Faletau's work.
