It is a welfare and/or bulletin board-- not so much a place to discuss Graham's work or related issues, but rather a place where human beings can exchange other things. It really struck me how the Anutans lived. It is a fellowship that lives and works together for the good of the fellowship.

Anuta Lapita makes landing
This copy of the Pacific Lapita Anuta has landed on the island of Anuta in the southeast of the Solomon Islands, Polynesia. The 11-meter-long ship landed at the minute Anuta on 16 March and crashed through the waves before a group of rugged island dwellers brought it up the precipitous rock.
It was on the Bruce Parry BBC programme Tribe last year. â??Lapita Voyageâ began in the first November 2008, when two twin-kayaks, built on an old polynese shape, embarked on a 4,000-mile oceanic trip along the Pacific Rim of the Philippines, Indonesia, New Guinea and the last trip to Anuta and Tikopia, two small, solomontan remoteness Islands, where the rowing floats were used to donate to the islands for a future trip between the Solomon islands.
You followed the "Lapita Pottery"-way, which the archeologists consider to be the way of the Polish hikes.
PACIFIC SOUTH - David Mitcham - Role music
The South Pacific (Wild Pacific in the USA) is a six-part UK environmental documentation programme of the BBC Natural Historical Unit, which was broadcast in 2009. A BBC/Discovery Channel co-production, the show focuses on the island, animal kingdom and humans of the South Pacific. Nobody programs the BBC's own course of the year: the BBC:
Blue Planet and Planet Earth are two good example of well-produced documentation of the environment that has been setting standards. The audience is regularly blinded by the drama of Mother Earth and sometimes for the first reason sees many facets of the universe around us. In addition to the dazzling imagery, inspiring musical talents include George Fenton (who has written elaborate compositions for both The Blue Planet and Planet Earth).
David Mitcham, a British-born composers, has been writing for cinema and TV since the end of the 90s, and his compositions for wilderness movies in particular have repeatedly received awards for their quality: A South Pacific musician, Mitcham has drawn inspiration from local regional folk songs, ukulele and drums to create a musical composition that enhances the geographic framework and gives subtleness to the various facets of South Pacific vivisth.
It starts with the outstanding "Opening Title Music", a brief keyword that uses all of the above to take the audience immediately to quaint island and blue oceans. From all the tunes on the record, it's the tunes - many of them written as music " sets " and with lyrics from different tongues like Maori, Hawaiian and Rapanui - that will be remembered when the record is over.
Mooki Ana Low-hey" and the opening piece are a cheerful prelude to the record and celebrate the area' s rich ness and culturality. The festive atmosphere is enhanced by songs like "Hey Nama Kay" and "Anuta Song". "This is a folk tune with an arrangements by Mitcham and is performed by a group of kids who break out into a tune after coming to see what the BBC movie team did on the water.
Onabulé' s lavish singing for some of the tunes (e.g. "Ho'okahi Moana Uli") and the inclusion of men's parts in other orchestra pieces such as "Magical Eels" and "Easter Island Majesty" add diversity and width to the music. In the more instrument-oriented part of the music, there are also a multitude of different ways to improve the various facets of living for the natural and secluded indigenous societies that are at the heart of the programs.
The South Pacific scores contain drama, for which Mitcham complements the scores with an 8 cello group and adds something more "classical" to his "musical palette". Lighthearted songs (apparently obligatory for documentary films in nature studies) also compete with cheerful ukulelele beats, which compete with Saxophone and "slapstick" Perussion (and what sound like a very soft lyre trumpet ) to complete funny pictures on the big monitor ("Mandarin Stock Fury" or "Meet The Monopodes").
And, after a scoring that ranges between prettiness, peril, sadness und humor, the record ends with a re-statement of the subject, which could be listened to for the first time in "Opening Title Music". The South Pacific scores of David Mitcham are an entertaining listening experience that takes the audience to the miracles of the South Pacific.
However, anyone who expects the greatness of an original nature documentation written by George Fenton will be sad. Mitcham's music is much more private and in a way his scores offer more diversity by using the different parts of the music in a multitude of interesting compositions. Remark: I thank the composers David Mitcham for giving me more information about the scores, especially about the singers who helped with the music.
