Product details

Autism Spectrum Disorder affects children affects 1 in every 42 boys and 1 in 189 Australian girls. ASD affects how people communicate and interact with others. It affects how they make sense of the world. Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) therapy helps children with autism develop their social, academic, self-help and behavioural skills needed to interact with others and to cope with the tests of life.
ddig Hapus (Angry Happy) was inspired by the observing ABA therapy sessions with autistic children, watching the struggle for clarity, the stereotypic, self-stimulatory behaviour these children use, often unceasingly, to cope.
The principal idea presented here is a response to this 'stimming', frantic playful rhythms and constantly interrupted ideas. The second section is a response to the plight of the relationship between parent and autistic child, attempting to reach their child and the fleeting moments of perceived connection and painful distance.
The drastic contrast in registers and harmonic textures between the horns and guitar allowed an expressive dialog of the thematic material. This unique ensemble affords opportunity for new harmonic consequences.
