Work Overview

My track Bardo (also pronounced Bardu) for three flutes is the Indigenous Dharug word for water, and it's refreshing and gushy, and 'runs in rivulet phrases and sections' perhaps where one may not expect. And for me to share that word with listeners is to ask them to participate in that renewal that comes with Aboriginal language reclamation. There is an element of bi-tonality in the piece reflecting the hope of many cultures drinking from the same springs.
