Audio Portraiture —The Sound of Identity, an Indigenous Artistic Enquiry

Document Thumbnail

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.
