Product details

Ron Nagorcka is not only a didjeridu virtuoso, but is one of Tasmania's most important and distinctive contemporary composers. Armed with his digital sampler, Nagorcka is able to not only draw upon the sounds of the local wildlife and countryside but combine them with extraordinary electronic manipulation and Pythagorean just intonation.

On this, his first CD for Move Records, Nagorcka is joined by his long-time collaborator, the Melbourne-based pianist, educator and co-composer Robert Williams. The gorgeous cover and backcard artwork is by the acclaimed Tasmanian artist, Philip Wolfhagen.

From the many Nagorcka / Williams didjeridu and sampler collaborations, to Elizabeth Anderson's harpsichord in Zygodactyl Dance, and Larry Polansky's electric guitar in Mood from Lake Mungo, Devils of the Night will provide an evening of listening you won't easily forget.

Duration: 65 min.
