Faletau has captured present day ongo (sounds) from Manukau Heads lighthouse and Whatipu beach. Utilising the frequencies of sound extracted from the recording gives Faletau material to create kupesi (Tongan patterns).
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).
Visual kupesi (Tongan patterns) are created and move in response to a Tongan choir.
Recorded sound from Auckland's CBD is transformed into kupesi (pattern).
Sound is not static, it moves in waves and into the flickering, morphing kupesi patterns of Sione Faletau's work.
