Event Details

An absorbing sonic and visual experience of the Australian night and day as seen through the eyes of William Barton. A celebrated musician who has elevated the didgeridoo to the world’s concert stages, William delves into his own roots in the country around Mt Isa where he grew up. A soul-searching visit to the Kalkadunga people in July 2008 was accompanied by acclaimed photographer Allan Chawner and became the starting point for this project. The ensuing collaboration with Roland Peelman and the Song Company has created a program with some of the most evocative vocal music written in Australia combined with the visceral sounds of the ‘didg’.

Featured non-Australian music: Bernard de Cluni, Apollinis eclipsatur (13th Cent) Guillaume Dufay, Conditor alme siderum (15th Cent)
