tjukurpa : for solo contrabass clarinet

by Philip Czaplowski (2021)

Work Overview

Inspiration for this work is from the following source: https://www.environment.gov.au/resource/tjukurpa-uluru-kata-tjuta-national-park:
"Tjukurpa is the foundation of Anangu life and society. Tjukurpa refers to the creation period when ancestral beings, Tjukaritja, created the world as we know it, and from this the religion, law and moral systems. 'Dreamtime' or 'Dreaming' is often used to describe the way we and other Indigenous Australians see our origins. This translation suggests the beliefs are unreal. Tjukurpa is no dream, and there is no such word as 'Dreamtime' in Anangu languages".
