Thoughts on musical experiences, my own works, and who knows what else.
Despite Sydney's latest lockdown, June 27th wasn't too gloomy. SHARING SPACES, a beautiful virtual concert conceptualised by Naarm-based composer Kezia Yap, was premiered to a live audience on YouTube. Opening the concert was Tessellata, a semi-improvised work performed and composed by flautist Jessica Scott and myself. This piece has been in development for over a year and several lockdowns; so nice to have it out in the world! Jessica and I decided to record a pared-back version of this soundscape for the concert, and filmed the video in my room along with all of our favourite houseplants. It only seemed fitting, as the piece is based on the life cycle of the Caladenia Tessellata Spider Orchid! You can re-watch Tessellata on my YouTube channel, where I am hoping to pop a lot of my works in future: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahh_5wotcW0
