Work Overview

Waterlilies draws its inspiration, as the title suggests, from the series of oil paintings of the same name by Claude Monet, and in particular his Nymphéas that hangs in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.

This work musically evokes Monet's multi-layered use of colour through the staggered layering of the guitar parts in the outer sections of the work, creating the effect of an electronic delay albeit in a live and acoustic way.

This live-delay effect continues throughout the middle section, which comprises a series of moody episodes bookended by the only passage in the work that is discernibly homophonic (stating a clear melody above an arpeggiated accompaniment).
