Australian Music Weekend 2015 & The Law Of The Tongue

Posted on April 16, 2015

Looking forward to the Australian Composition Seminar 2015 at Santa Sabina College, featuring premieres by several local composers, including myself! My contribution is a movement of a string quartet titled The Law Of The Tongue, an allusion to the symbiotic relationship between killer whales and whalers in the New South Welsh town of Eden, which lasted up to the 1930s.

 

Check out the ABC documentary on the subject for more context.
