Product details

The Open Sky, extracted from its original setting in Yamatji Man (performed in 2012) and renamed, now stands alone as a separate work. The didjeridu is now a strand, albeit an important one, within the multi-cultural tapestry that reflects something of my own conflicted identity.

A mostly notated work, but with ample opportunities for contemporary cross-cultural jazz ensembles to express themselves. Starting with a very still introductory adagio section, it moves into an exultant groove movement, before concluding with a short hymn-like reprise of the opening.

Blessed be the sax and didjeridu, and long may s/he/they sing and exult the expanse and eternity of the sky, if the spirit so moves them.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (14p. -- B4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Medium — 'Not difficult at all for an experienced Jazz ensemble, or even motivated and keen students (and aren't we all still students!?)'

Duration: 14 mins, 30 sec.

Includes programme notes and performance directions.

Performance parts available from composer.

Typeset edition.
