The Blue Labyrinth is one of the hidden gems of the Blue Mountains. The unspoilt landscape consists of an intricate maze of twisted sandstone ridge lines, separated by deep rain-forested gorges with an abundance of clear streams.
The score is in three sections, the first and last featuring a haunting theme for didjeribone. The middle section is exciting, fast and loud. It was developed from driving rhythmic improvations on piano with the didjeridu in B. The work is scored but currently unpublished.
Instrumentation: Piano with didjeribone and didjeridu in B
Duration: 10 min.
Composition/arrangement by A. Handel on a theme for didjeribone by M. Jackson.
This work also exists in a different version - with much calmer central section - for the sound track of a special video installation in the theatre at the Blue Mountains World Heritage Visitors' Centre in the Mount Tomah Botanic Garden west of Sydney.
- Inspired by: Landscape and Nature
