Work Overview

A brutal groove inspired by the Megalania, a giant lizard native to Australia 50 000 years ago. Megalania grew up to 5 metres in length, were venomous and carnivorous. A range of extended techniques have been used to capture the horror (and beauty!) of this beast; muliphonics, harmonics, breath tones and false fingerings.
