Work Overview

Clarity draws from the internal reflections and focus achieved through isolation in some of Australia's most remote locations. It refers particularly to specific places in the Monaro region in the surrounds of the Australian Capital Territory, including Numeralla where the Countegany fog rolls in across the eucalypt-laden mountains in the evening. Flute hauntingly weaves with the performer's voice and cello lines, moving from lush haunting tones to rapid movements.
