The Physical Manifestation of Music

“The Physical Manifestation of Music” is a piece based on the sculptured Steinway “He Kōrero Purākau mo Te Awanui o Te Motu: Story of a New Zealand River”, carved by Michael Parekowhai, which was exhibited at the 2011 Venice Biennale and is currently on show in Whangarei. No photography is allowed, but images can be seen here.

“The Physical Manifestation of Music” is likely to be included as part of a larger grouping of poems. As such, it may be seen by some as a fragment, but I regard it as a component complete in itself, with its own integrity.

I include my preliminary notes. There is one change from the original.
