Daisy Bates: In 1913 Daisy Bates went to live in the South Australian desert, staying nearly thirty years. This work explores her death, expressing both the passing of what she represented, and the sorrow over the impact of white culture on Aboriginal culture.
Broadcast on "The Listening Room" on ABC Classic FM, 29 June 1998.
West of west: improvising musicians Denley and Wishart travelled to Tibooburra in far west NSW. They were interested in the timbres, the sequences, the events and time scales, the musicality of environmental sounds. The culmination of their journey is this unique musical work, raising questions about 'natural' and 'artifical' sounds. Concept and performance by Jim Denley and Stevie Wishart.
