Architectural plans of beach houses near Melbourne have been used
to create distinctive sound qualities. Cross-media collaboration
with photography addresses environmental issues concerning the
dredging of the bays near Melbourne. Since the premiere of Buddha
on Mars by the National Symphony of Thailand in 2005, Eve's
ongoing engagement with Asian-Pacific music has now extended to
the distinctive Korean kayageum.
