Recording of the premiere of Red Tree . Red Earth . Red Water by the Yarra Trio at Melba Hall in 2008.
Red Tree . Red Earth . Red Water is one of a group of compositions concerned with the idea of stillness and the attempt to arrest time in what is essentially a temporal medium. This is my first foray into the piano trio genre and also serves as a preliminary exploration of the timbral palette which can be drawn from this particular group of instruments. The title of this piece is not intended to communicate a specific narrative or image, but rather exists as a point of reference from which the listener may experience the music.
