Shaun Tan is a well-loved children's author and illustrator. His wordless novel The Arrival tells the story of a refugee's foray in an alien world. Sydney musician and composer Ben Walsh picked up the novel in a bookshop and promptly fell in love with it; three years later, and his eleven-piece Orkestra brings the textless world to life with sound: sousaphone, saxophone, clarinet, violin, guitar, tabla, synthesizers, percussion, zithers and a vacuum cleaner.
