“A sonic tapestry...as torpid as a summer day, as threatening as a thundershower” – The Australian
In this powerful evocation of place, Samuel Wagan Watson’s award-winning cycle of poems is paired with musical commentaries by 23 Brisbane composers, including William Barton, Richard Mills and Paul Dean. Commissioned by Paul Dean for the Music and Words Series at the State Library of Queensland, Smoke Encrypted Whispers is a testament to visions both poetic and musical.
Members of the Arcadia Wind Quintet are joined by mentor Paul Dean and the prize-winning duo from the Mietta Song Competition, Tabatha MacFadyen and Alex Raineri, for this eclectic and satisfying music journey, bound together by the poet’s voice, as Samuel Wagan Watson reads his own work
