Matilda Deconstructions was commissioned by pianist, Elyane Laussade, to form a set of variations by Melbourne composers on the unofficial Australian anthem, Waltzing Matilda. Being a national theme, it has been subjected to many patriotic renditions. This commission, however, allowed me to consider the theme from a more neutral perspective. Featuring only selected notes and intervals, these two deconstructions take musical DNA from this well-known anthem into a different aesthetic.
Duration: 5 min.
