The poem of this title by Max Richards describes events and happenings in and around Melbourne, particularly those connected with La Trobe University. The poetic style is down to earth rather than romantic or philosophical but with a touch of the surreal. Rather than a simple illustration of the poem, the pervading musical atonality results in an expansion of the text and the surreal implications are brought to the fore.
Instrumentation: Small ensemble consisting of solo baritone singer, flute/piccolo, oboe/cor anglais, trombone, vibraphone/percussion/marimba (1 or 2 players), piano/synthesizer or ondes martinot.
Duration: 11 min.
