The streamed premiere performance of Mike Nock's commission for the Sydney Improvised Music Association (SIMA), The River Flows, the River Sings, was streamed live from a special event at the Australian Institute of Music in Sydney, on 15 October, to celebrate Mike Nock's 80th birthday last month.
The composer-pianist says about the work,
'The River Flows, the River Sings is a celebration of the life of Peter Curran, a huge supporter of SIMA and Australian jazz. I hope the piece will remind listeners of the vitally important role Australian creative music can play in helping us overcome darkness.'
The new work is available for viewing via AIM's YouTube channel.
