Work Overview

The 7 songs are set to poems by Australian poet John Shaw Neilson. The words are romantic, wry, loving, contemplative, metaphorical, amusing, reflective. The music seeks to encapsulate the mood of the words in a structure where the singer is not so much accompanied, but is part of the musical fabric.
