Welcome to CMNZ’s winter edition of Theme, a little something to read with your cup of tea. With the grey weather and darker days, this edition focuses on colour, new and old objects, and explores some new connections and compositions.

We explore synaesthesia and explore how composers through history have “heard” colour in music, and how it might have affected their experiences or changed their approach to music.

We also look at an exciting new study at Otago University tracing Chatham Island Taonga Pūoro. Dr Jennifer Cattermole is leading the study, which will bring new light to a knowledge-gap in the music history of Aotearoa. Western music taonga is also beautifully illuminated by Elisabeth Bisley, who will take us through some of the treasures of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. There are other stories in here too, which we hope will pique your interest.

Enjoy!

Ngā mihi,
CMNZ.
