Product details

Whenever I visit my home country of Western Australia, more of it has disappeared. Features of the landscape disappear under the imposed contours of agriculture, tarmac, oil refineries, suburbs and the like. Of course, this disappearance began before my lifetime - one could say that the process of decay begins after the first few moments of Creation. Nevertheless, the loss of what one knew for oneself carries a powerful emotional charge.

These thoughts underlie my piece. I was thinking in terms of singing the landscape: as when the Ancestors sang the contours into being during its first creation; or when we sing it in our memory, re-creating the landscapes of our childhood; or when the earth itself continues singing its own shapes and contours under the surfaces we have imposed.
