Dredge is a collection of three works for percussion quartet that were composed as part of a collaborative work with photographer Siri Hayes. It consists of music, photography, photograms, a lightbox, video with both live and pre-recorded music. Issues arising from dredging in Port Phillip and Westernport Bays, Victoria, Australia, were used as metaphors for the layering of texture, substance and narrative with an aquatic focus. Ecologically sensitive areas of dredging, such as the risk to aquatic life , were explored concurrently with issues of rising sea levels.
Instrumentation: Percussion quartet.
Commission note: Commissioned by Arts Victoria.
