Deepwater 1 is the first of two pieces for alto flute
and classical guitar from my There Is a River project-a
collection of duets for guitar and other instruments (clarinet,
bass clarinet, alto flute, and Tibetan singing bowl). They
reflect upon a process of forgiveness and on the life of the
South Esk River as it flows through Cataract Gorge in Launceston,
Tasmania, where I was artist-in-residence in 2001.
Preceded by musical expressions of denial, anger, and grief, the Deepwater pieces celebrate inner peace (Deepwater 1) and exuberant joy (Deepwater 2) that may follow from a process of reconciliation with oneself and possibly the offender after a profound hurt.
Instrumentation: Alto flute, guitar.
Duration: 3 min.
Commission note: Commissioned with funds provided by Arts Tasmania.
Formerly titled: Blackwater 1
