Sonic hieroglyphs : from the night-continent / [by Jim Denley]

Library shelf no. CD 405 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

This music is an offering to the Budawang mountains south of Sydney. They appeared to me once as the lair of the nigh-continent. The mist descended and I wandered lost through dank bush, down labyrinthine wallaby tracks where, in a state of heightened awareness, I met a mountain crab.

— Jim Denley
