The novel, Here at the end of the world we learn to dance, by New Zealand author Lloyd Jones, tells of a lifelong relationship between two people, forged by the tango, which begins on the West Coast of New Zealand, and ends in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Three excerpts from the novel focus on dancing and learning the tango by these two and others drawn into their story. The long song adopts the different tango styles and moods referred to in the story through a three-song structure with a refrain and interludes. Composed 2012

|The Blue Ice Cave for piano and toy piano was influenced by a photograph of a blue ice cave in Antarctica. The piece explores the toy piano as a colour which highlights and enhances aspects of the piano writing. This piece forms part of a project titled, "Antarctica", a collection of piano pieces for toy piano by composers from Italy, Spain, Portugal, New Zealand and Australia. The project was instigated by Diana Blom and all pieces were recorded by the Italian pianist, Antoinetta Lofrredo (both volume and recording available online).
