Southern right whales have been quietly and wonderfully returning to Australian shores. These giant creatures bring us back to our mammalian roots, the warm-blooded milky world of our beginnings. In this piece, I have tried to evoke a dreamy half-remembered world using D.H. Lawrence's poem of the same name, where the boundaries between human and whale sounds is ambiguous as are the voices and marimba and crotales, all intermingling.
Instrumentation: SATB choir, marimba, crotales.
Duration: 14 min.
