Work Overview

On a hot December day on a property near Bathurst, New South Wales, I imagined the aural image of a father crooning his newborn baby to sleep with a lilting, pastoral melody. At the time I was supposed to be well-entrenched into writing my Ph.D. thesis, but the temptation to write a piece of music was just too much.
Lullaby, for strings, was the result. Lullaby is not a piece that aims to change the world, rather, a simple expression of quiet, personal times between people generations apart.
I am especially pleased that Lullaby will be premiered at the Vale of Glamorgan Festival as I imagine the melody may suit the landscape. Matthew Hindson, 2003
