To date the potential of 3D immersive and binaural sound technologies have not been applied to audio portraiture nor considered as a means of approaching and expressing indigenous identity. This paper looks at an artistic, practice-led study that utilizes the technology of 3D immersive and binaural sound technologies to create audio portraits and depictions of indigenous Maori women (wahine) from New Zealand/Aotearoa. This enquiry is part of my Ph.D. doctoral research that seeks to artistically interpret the identity and multiple-dimensionality of these women through sound. By multiple-dimensionality, I refer to historical, physical, cognitive, social, emotional, political, and spiritual dimensions of being.
