Product details

Morning Star is the first in a series of three chamber pieces whose material is partly derived from Aboriginal clan from central Arnhem Land. This piece refers obliquely to a melody called "Morning Star" which is presented in a simple, song-like arrangement in the first movement, fragmented into insistent ostinatos in the second and subsequently transformed into a frenetic dance in 7/8 for the final movement. The use of this material is in no way an overt attempt to present something 'Australian' nor to represent Aboriginal culture: Morning Star, my first piece for ensemble, is a personal musical response to the rich tradition of indigenous music making in the Northern Territory.
