Recording of Red Tree . Red Earth . Red Water

Audio, Events

Recording of the premiere of Red Tree . Red Earth . Red Water by the Yarra Trio at Melba Hall in 2008.

Program note:

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.

World premiere of ‘Burning Water’

This concert includes the premiere of my piece ‘Burning Water’ for which I was awarded the 2008 Spivakovsky prize. The piece was inspired by the poetry of Charles Bukowski and by contemporary scientific research on the destabilising effect of certain radio waves on water. It will be performed by the Southbank Brass Ensemble, made up of students of the brass department of the VCAM school of Music, and will be conducted by the acting head of the brass department Russell Davis.
