Sheet Music: Score
Cloudcatcher I : for two pianos / Michael Hannan.
by Michael Hannan (2016)
Cloudcatcher is one of the translations of "Wollumbin",
the indigenous name for the Northern NSW volcanic-plug mountain
that in 1770 James Cook named Mount Warning. Wollumbin is a
sacred Aboriginal site, said to be at the intersection of many
Having lived in the nearby village of Nimbin for more than 20 years I have gained much inspiration from the natural environment of the Border Ranges area, including an ongoing fascination with the majestic Wollumbin, whose distinctive peak, true to the translation "cloudcatcher" is often temporally shrouded by moving clouds.
The first movement of Cloudcatcher I, "Flight", responds to the clouds and birds that move over and around Wollumbin. The second, "Meditation" contemplates the imposing presence of the mountain. The third, "Vibration", imagines its physical and spiritual energies, past and present. And the fourth, "Birdsong", is a meditation on the calls of some birds common to the area.
