Product details

"Uisce", meaning "water" in Irish, is an installation for voices where the voices tumble over each other like water falling. The performers read the score in a unique way so that each perormer forges an individual pathway through the piece like a current of water in a river. The score is a visual artwork set out on five ceiling to floor panels representing a waterfall.

This piece, written at the Inishlacken artist in residence in Ireland, curated by Rosie MacGurran, was premiered by The Song Company in 2007 during Modart07, a composer development project held by The Song Company in association with the Australian Music Centre.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (35p. -- A4 (portrait))
