Haast – Hāwea

Self-described “experimental new age/meditative music”, involve gentle, dry synths and field recordings made while tramping. Their self-titled first release from 2019 has over 33k views on YouTube. Perhaps the lack of cavernous reverbs and massive echoes sets the music apart: the results are small and intimate-sounding.

December 2020’s Taumuri combines both local recordings and those made in the Northern Hemisphere, such as Iceland and the UK.
