Product details

Composed in 1996, Indian Pacific is my first orchestral work - the title referring to the train journey across Australia of the same name.
I wrote the work, ironically enough, when I was living in London and it may have been borne from a third-party perspective of life in Australia if not genuine homesickness.

Indian Pacific is built around an unrelenting chugging quaver rhythm that remains constant for most of the piece. It is scored for the usual orchestral forces but also includes piano and a large variety of percussion instruments. Amongst these is a small length of railway track that is played with metal beaters for that authentic train-spotting experience!
