Product details

Choral music in Australia has grown into a vibrant and diverse scene in recent years. Australian
Voices, the Queensland-based choir, has played a major role in this development, commissioning
and performing many young Australian composers, and their CD Ngana showcases some of their favourite Australian works. Artistic Director and well-known composer, Stephen Leek, has compiled a series of activities exploring performance, musicology and composition, to go with the CD.

 

The kit explores a huge range of compositional techniques from canons to clusters, word painting to colouristic devices and drones to polyrhythms. It also includes song texts, interviews and biographical information about each of the composers, and solo and group activities for students.

 

The CD features composers Stephen Leek, Paul Stanhope, Daniel Walker, Jacqueline Atherton,
Matthew Orlovich, Kathryn Reeves and Julian Callaghan. All compositions are Australian, and
written in the last 25 years.

An exploraration of contemporary music techniques through an examination of works by Paul Stanhope, Daniel Walker, Jacqueline Atherton, Stephen Leek, Matthew Orlovich, Kathryn Reeves and Julian Callaghan.

Accompanied CD 'Ngana' by The Australian Voices (Voices CD004).
