Work Overview

At night, space, form and sound reveal mysterious and subtle qualities which change in intensity between dusk and dawn.
Still forms contrasting with temporal events transforming into thoughts of pure fantasy comprise the main structural devices of this single movement work, initially inspired by characteristic night impressions of rural Southern Tasmania.
