Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
Composed as a film piece with Sally Golding. Home movies from the State Library of Queensland, most dating from the 1920s-1930s, depict unstaged daily domestic life with music that is tender, direct, exciting and ultimately elegaic.
Instrumentation: Soprano saxophone, violin, viola, double bass, piano. (Normally performed with the film by Sally Golding, but may be performed as instrumental music)
Duration: 42 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Some parts are easy, others require rhythmic expertise
Commission note: Commissioned by Queensland Music Festival.
Co-composed with Julia Davidson.
The composer cites as influences on the work: film music, Terry Riley, Erik Satie, Sufjan Stevens, Jon Brion, Thomas Newman.
May be played without film, but the piece is designed to be performed with Sally Golding's film, the performers synchronising by use of a click track.
