‘Ear to Waipapa Taumata Rau’ is a live-coding performance by performers from two different continents remotely exploring the sonic components of the location of the NIME2022 conference - Waipapa Taumata Rau. The improvised performance is based on processing sound generated by crowdsourced field recordings from Waipapa Taumata Rau from Freesound.org. The piece is a premiere for NIME2022 and a free interpretation of John Cage’s ‘A Dip in the Lake’. The defining feature of this piece is although the conference participants, listeners and performers are globally distributed, by listening and contributing to the whole composition they could feel in location by their ears. The audience can also interact with the piece live visually and sonically on their mobile devices.
