The piece uses electronic "instruments" which I constructed from recordings of galahs. This includes short segments of galah song which have been "looped" to produce sustained notes. These are played on a MIDI keyboard which controls audio software. These "instruments" are tuned to a 24 note/octave just intonation scale of my own invention. The samples used by the software are available as .wav files which can be obtained from the AMC. A separate sample is provided for each note, so that each note is correctly tuned. This means the piece can be played using any available audio software.
Instrumentation: Didjeridu, MIDI keyboard controlling audio software. Requires amplification.
Duration: 6 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Professional.
In order to know what this piece sounds like, it is necessary to listen to a recording, as it is written in a 24 tone/octave scale and the score does not make harmonic sense if read normally in equal temperament
The sounds produced by the sampler are all derived using sampling techniques from recordings of galahs.
