Product details

Under Yaraandoo is a set of five chamber pieces for didjeridu, guitar and percussion that acts as a kind of foil to Dance Gundah, affording the didjeridu the opportunity to interact on a more intimate level with the other instruments, especially the guitar. Nonetheless, as in Dance Gundah, I have striven to achieve a fusion of musical cultures. Whereas all ensemble members are present in pieces I, III and V, piece II is scored for didjeridu and guitar and piece IV for didjeridu and percussion. Although each piece enjoys an independent existence, it has a meaningful status as a member of the group. Whilst the first and fifth pieces exhibit fairly close musical ties, the second and fourth, although fully written out and of contrasting character, have in common an improvisatory feel. All four bear reference to the third. It is the focus of the group gathering the others around it, rather like members of a constellation, hence the use of Yaraandoo (Southern Cross) in the title. Distinguished from the others in mood and texture, it features a lyrical duet between guitar and vibraphone in its outer sections, while an ethereal dialogue between percussion and didjeridu in its central section brings to mind for me a sense of oneness with the Australian bush.
