Year of composition: 1999.

Although the voices used for these songs cannot be individually recognised, they did contribute not only their cultural sound but their personal 'voice print'. Other voices would have made for different results. Though this suite of songs shares a thematic origin, they are equally suited to individual listening -- Composer's note.

A suite of nine songs. The music is made from the spoken language which was then computer processed. The resemblance between the processed sound from language and the music from the parent culture is evident -- Composer's note.

Copyright held by ABC.

First performance broadcast on the radio programme The Listening Room, ABC Classic FM, November 1999 -- Composer's note.

Commissioned by ABC Classic FM for The Listening Room -- Composer's note.
