Work Overview

Arriving on a clear night by plane often provides beautiful views of a city's lights mapping out the electric architecture of human civilisation. It's a welcoming image - the guiding lights for travellers arriving at a new destination or returning home. This piece was written for Ben Northey and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra as part of the Hush Foundation's TSO recording project.
