BLUE GOLD is an electroacoustic work
for cello and clarinets, sculptures and digital colour field and
moving imagery. It investigates the delicate balance between wet
and dry, hugros, xeros, symbolised in the colours of the title
BLUE GOLD. The performers, cello (wet) and the clarinets
(dry), navigate their way through the electroacoustic sound
fields sourced from the Southern Ocean underwater recordings,
aeolian harps in the arid Mungo desert, flash storms in the bush
and the wetlands of the Otway Ranges. RIVERS TALK is a
new collaborative radiophonic work on Australian river ecology, a
joint mix of river culture from the Murray River in Mildura,
Victoria and the Noosa River in Queensland. RIVERS TALK
dissolves the dense local sonic profiles from the artists' solo
works Voicing the Murray (1996) and Confluence
(2005) in a dynamic profile of continuing issues surrounding
river care and the sensitive man/nature relationships. --
