Tiki Taane in Session with CSO

Film (Trailer) – 2023


This concert documentary was filmed in May 2021 in front of a sold-out audience at the recently restored Christchurch Town Hall. Tiki Taane collaborated with the 50 piece Christchurch Symphony Orchestra to reimagine 13 compositions from his back catalogue, including his breakthrough 2008 hit 'Always on My Mind'. In this trailer, an energetic Taane is joined by some musical guests. In what may be a first for an orchestra, he also performs some 'live looping'. Taane directed and produced, as well as starring. The film was invited to multiple international festivals.

Sometimes there are 40-50 people involved in playing the music, which takes it to another level — a level that is powerful, it's unforgettable, it's moving, it's emotional, it has so much depth to it and width to it. For me, it's the pinnacle.
– Musician Tiki Taane on performing with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Newshub, 20 May 2021
