Product details

This is composer Eve Duncan's third release, a 2-CD set, and it heralds new approaches in her music. The various works involve many different instrumental combinations and performers.

Architectural plans of beach houses near Melbourne have been used to create distinctive sound qualities. Cross-media collaboration with photography addresses environmental issues concerning the dredging of the bays near Melbourne. Since the premiere of Buddha on Mars by the National Symphony of Thailand in 2005, Eve's ongoing engagement with Asian-Pacific music has now extended to the distinctive Korean kayageum.
Eve's composition awards include the International Music Prize for Excellence in Composition (Greece), Recital Music Double Bass Composition Competition (England) and the International Modern Music Award for Composition (Vienna). She has served on the Executive Committee of the Asian Composers League and is a past Chairman of the Melbourne Composers League. She completed a Master of Music Composition at the University of Melbourne, Honours in Composition at Latrobe University and is currently a Doctoral candidate at the University of Western Sydney.

Duration: 116 min.

Liner notes include programme notes and biographical notes on the composer.
