Product details

This album brings together two impressive Australian musical talents: composer Stuart Greenbaum and guitarist Ken Murray.

Greenbaum is an award-winning composer whose ever-expanding body of work is heard around Australia and internationally. He has written operas, symphonies and concertos, but here he focuses on the intimate sound world of the solo guitar, with a series of evocative musical landscapes that take us from the bustle of suburban train stations to the loneliness of the endlessly open sea, from historical battlefields to the Thin Blue Line of the album's title track: Earth's ozone layer as seen from space. Says Greenbaum: 'My music aims to evoke an atmosphere apart from the routine of modern life. I believe in the need to allow space in a world increasingly filled with commercialism, light and noise pollution and 24/7 thinking.'

Ken Murray is Head of Guitar at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, The University of Melbourne, with a career stretching back more than 20 years, combining performance, teaching, research and composition. He has worked extensively with Greenbaum and is a keen exponent of contemporary music, with over 100 premiere performances to his credit; he is also a champion of Spanish, Brazilian and South American guitar music. He has featured on CD recordings for Mode Records in the USA, the Austrian label Kairos, and in Australia on Move Records, and his CDs and concerts have been broadcast on ABC Classic FM.

Duration: 56 min.

Liner booklet includes programme notes and biographical information about composer and performer.
