Feel The Seasons Change

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

Live album: Feel The Seasons Change

In February of this year, Salmonella Dub and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra united for the Feel The Seasons Change tour, with shows performed in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Nelson. This tour will now be immortalised through the release of a live album in September.
Feel The Seasons Change combines Salmonella Dub’s contemporary music and production values with Te Reo Maori, the ancient arts of taonga puoro (traditional Maori instruments), and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra’s classical tradition.

The project was graced by special guest performances in the form of the superlative voice of acclaimed Te Reosinger Whirimako Black; the haunting sounds of renowned taonga puoro expert Richard Nunns; and leading electronic musician Paddy Free of Pitch Black.
The concept behind Feel The Seasons Change is a three-part audiovisual exploration, weaving together Aotearoa’s historical and modern cultural worlds in a journey towards healing and celebration. The story is told through live renditions of compositions chosen from Salmonella Dub’s recent album Heal Me and their extensive back catalogue.
Noted Christchurch arranger Tom Rainey took a ‘ground-up’ collaborative approach to the arrangements, making the NZSO an integral part of the music to create a unified sound scape, rather than just bolstering the performances as a ‘backing group’.
The Feel The Seasons Change album captures the live performance at Auckland’s Aotea Centre on the 1st February 2008, and will be released through Virgin Music on Monday 22nd September.
