Bestiary

Australian pianist Zubin Kanga with electronics artist Ben Carey, will premiere my work Bestiary for piano and electronics on tour in Australia in October 2016. This piece will be performed as one of a collection of pieces by composers from all over world. The program is entitle Cyborg pianist and will be performed at WAAPA, The Melbourne Recital Centre and The Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Bestiary is a sonic compendium of grotesque imaginary beasts, that float between heaven and hell. Epic and symbolic animals that are animated in music, twisting and twining around each other, writhing and seething in knotted ornaments with pulsating bodies of skin, fur, scales, feathers, hair, beaks, teeth, claws and nostrils. Drawing you in, they peep around the corner and look at you up and down as they guard the shadows with ferocious jealousy.

Cello

Kate Moore plays The Peace Cello made by Dutch luthier Saskia Schouten. The cello, completed in 2016, is Saskia’s 50th cello. It is marked by a Peace sign inlay made of Ebony and Peer. The peace sign commemorates the Bataclan attacks in France and the proceeds of this instrument have been donated to Musicians Without Borders. “War divides and music connects”.

Coral Speak (August 2016)

Coral Speak for Louise Devenish is a percussion suite of laments and playful dances in homage to the fragility of the Great Barrier Reef, where the corals are currently under threat due to climate changes and human intervention. Each piece imagines the colourful interplay of movement between the living corals, joyful sentient creatures celebrating the their idyllic surrounding and utopian waters. The pieces have a melancholic edge at the prospect of the corals retreating and dissipating as the water changes. The ebullient dance of life and beauty comes to an abrupt halt as it is silenced and abandoned, leaving behind a skeleton like a ruined underwater city that once thrived, never to return.
