Clasically-trained pianist, composer and beat maker Anonymouz - Matthew Faiumu Salapu - travelled to Samoa in August as part of a delegation of New Zealand-Samoan artists to celebrate NZ-Samoa Friendship Week, an event marking the 50th anniversary of the two countries' Treaty of Friendship. For his presentation at Apia's Vanya Taule'alo art gallery, Anonymouz produced a found-sound track, stitching together recordings from his time in the islands. He tells us about the sonic ingredients that went into 'Return to Hawaiiki'.
