Work Overview

A work exploring the moods created by night images of Lake Tyrrell in Victoria.

This salt lake (when there is water in it) perfectly reflects the sky and the stars at night are particularly impressive. The work can be played alone but is meant to accompany various images by Australian photographer Alex Cherney. For performance, a video is available from the composer.
