The Reef / by Richard Tognetti, Jon Frank, Mick Sowry and Iain Grandage.
ABC Classics along with Australian Chamber Orchestra are proud to present this remarkable fusion of classical and contemporary music, the disciplines of surfing and musical virtuosity and a marriage of images between one of this country's most beautiful natural wonders and the exquisite music of some our finest young musicians.
In May 2012, Richard Tognetti took both musicians and surfers to the rugged surf coast and tough desert landscape of northern Western Australia to create a new performance piece at the intersection of music and nature.
Travelling with Tognetti to world heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef, making music and surfing with the locals, was a remarkable collection of artists:
photographer Jon Frank, director Mick Sowry, composer Iain Grandage, didgeridoo player Mark Atkins, singer Steve Pigram and the young musicians of AcO2.
Together they have created a performance using music and film to delve into the links between surfing, the ocean, landscape and music.
