This piece depicts four scenes of the Bluff at Encounter Bay on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.
Each scene portrays something different on the Bluff, from young birdlife fighting the elements, the grassy reeds that cover the inclines, the sleepy lizards that rustle through the grass and bake in the sun, to the granite that erupted to the surface 300m years ago to create the Bluff and the two large islands visable from the summit, West Island and Granite Island.
The overall picture is one of evolutionary codependence, the fauna and flora die but are renewed, omnipresent over an incomprehensible time period. Similarly, our sense of home is finding our own understanding of place in this incomprehensible continuum.
Instrumentation: String trio.
Duration: 15 min.
Commission note: Commissioned by Katie Yap of the Wattleseed Ensemble, with funding from the Australian Cultural Fund.
