The Lines in the title refer to melodic lines as a metaphor for
the Songlines of Australian Aborigines which they used to
navigate their way as they moved through the land. The two
melodic instruments play a melodic line or lines which undergo
isorhythmic treatment. The harp elaborates and thickens the
texture at cadential points. Despite there being plenty of
variety, after some time, relief in the form of static prolonged
harmonies is heard, much as there would be a need for relief at a
watering hole after a walk in the desert. These two types of
texture form the basis of the work.
It will be inferred from this, that, as with most of my present compositions, there was no initial planning. The aim rather is to allow arbitrarily chosen elements to become more important, or to combine them as is fitting in the final section of this piece.
