Work Overview

Burruguu is the Yuwaalaraay word for 'Time of Creation.' I am playing with this concept as not only a musical reference to the beginnings of Aboriginal time (the Lore, the dreaming or everywhen), but also an embodiment of the immediate point of musical creation, allowing space for the ensemble to create within the piece. Ngarra-Burria brings the final piece to this puzzle; its continued growth and development, a promise to the future. Burruguu is all around us, yesterday, today and tomorrow.
