Ears was written for a scratch orchestra, assembled by Compost Composers for the concert BIG and performed at QSO studios at Ferry Road in Brisbane in 1999. The work contains funk and new music elements. The influence of my composition teacher Gerard Brophy can be heard, as well as ideas that were echoed by my ensemble at the time, Babel. The work contains some moderate rhythmic challenges, particularly for the 2 drummers, who perform overlapping additive rhythms.
Instrumentation: Large mixed ensemble (orchestral and electric instruments).
Duration: 8 min.
Difficulty: Medium — some rhythmic challenges
Commission note: Commissioned by Compost Composers Collective.
First performance: 1999. QSO studios, Ferry Rd, West End, QLD
