Product details

White Noise was written as a collaboration between the composer and Lao-Australian writer Sumana Viravong as part of the composer-in-residence project the composer completed with the Campbelltown Arts Centre in Sydney, 2006. Sumana Viravong's words speak largely about the modern lives of people living in the Campbelltown area, which is an area that is close to the city of Sydney and therefore partly suburban. The Campbelltown area though is also close to some of Australia's farming areas and natural wonders.

This 'in-between' location is the main inspiration for the musical elements of White Noise. The work has a mixture of textures ranging from very calm to active and even chaotic. Contrast between these calmer textures representing the more 'relaxed' side of the Campbelltown area and the more active textures representing the suburban, is a feature of the piece. The opening textures are predominantly calmer; as the work progresses though the active and more chaotic become more prevalent, culminating in a climactic section. This is contrasted with a calmer finale that gradually dissipates.
