Sheet Music: Score
SINUATUS / Wendy Suiter.
by Wendy Suiter (2022)
SINUATUS is inspired by the unusual flowers of the Queensland Firewheel Tree, as well as Pauline Oliveros' philosophy of deep listening to include psychic phenomena as well as the sounds of and in everyday and unusual locations.
My very first choral experience in my music degree was a four
Pauline composed using only vocalisation of the sounds produced by a tape recorder mechanics. Sadly, although I cannot remember the name of this music, but I loved the notion of backwards translation from machine to human sound making as well as the freedom in the way sounds melded together in time to make the bigger meaning from the individual weird sounds.
