Product details

A collaboration between a young Australian composer and a multi-award winning poet, combining elements of contemporary chamber music, electric instruments, electronics and voice with a vivid text.
"Like every city, the soundscape is a constant hum of people, traffic lights, cars, buses, birds. Depending on where you are, you also hear water, trains, music. Depending on when you are, your ears pick up the scurry of rats and possums, the asymmetrical rhythm of drunken steps in cloppy heels punctuated by profane outbursts, laughter and conversation in many languages. Some people open their mouths and the sound of bank notes flap with their tongues. Others speak with a smile full of shark teeth, ever-ready to take a nip. The lucidity of the dream that created the structures holding this city together - something beautiful yet strange." - Composer Note

Duration: 39 min.
