Cirrus was inspired by the Melbourne sky on a bright but cold day. It reflects and meditates on the view from the Djerring Trail, a path that winds its way beneath the sky rail near my home. Thin wisps of white dot - a deep azure canvas that stretches off into the distance between a frame of concrete. The suburban trains that periodically roll overhead bring their own rhythm, punctuating the stillness above. Written between lockdowns, during a time of great uncertainty, the work seeks to explore these small glimpses of awe and beauty that exist in the ordinary, and in the interplay between the natural world and our modern existence.
Instrumentation: Bass clarinet, vibraphone, violin, double bass.
Commission note: Commissioned by Ngarra-Burria.
