54. THE COMPOSER'S LIFE - NATHAN & JOEL HAINES
Brothers Nathan and Joel Haines are musicians and composers of note, each having carved out successful musical careers.
The sons of an accomplished bassist, the pair spent their formative years performing around Auckland and joined the group Freebass in the early 1990s.
Nathan, who has produced seven solo albums to date, has lived in both New York and London, where his musical career has been influenced by a range of other musical genres.
Joel meanwhile has an impressive list of composing credits to his name for feature films, television series and commercials and has worked with a myriad of Maori directors and artists, including traditional Maori instrument players.
They speak with Mike Chunn about the composer’s life.
