Waterlilies draws its inspiration, as the title
suggests, from the series of oil paintings of the same name by
Claude Monet, and in particular his Nymphéas that hangs
in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Australia
This work musically evokes Monet's multi-layered use of colour through the staggered layering of the guitar parts in the outer sections of the work, creating the effect of an electronic delay albeit in a live and acoustic way.
This live-delay effect continues throughout the middle section, which comprises a series of moody episodes bookended by the only passage in the work that is discernibly homophonic (stating a clear melody above an arpeggiated accompaniment).
Instrumentation: 2 guitars.
Duration: 5 min.
Dedication note: For Cedric
First performance: by Brew Guitar Duo — 26 Nov 07. The Promethean, Adelaide
