Albert Elea Namatjira by Michael Atherton

Score

SATB choir, c.6'30
This musical homage to Aboriginal artist, Namatjira (1902-1959) is a reworking of the 1996 composition commissioned by the Australian Voices Youth Choir. The musical texture is concerned with the layering and juxtaposition of colour, the subtlety of the painter’s use of shadow and a sense of bursting into light.  For discounted price on multiple copies contact keats@wirripang.com.au 
Composed in 1996 rev. 2014

Creative Explosion by Various Composers

CD

 
The creative aesthetic behind this project is to have a strong intercultural focus featuring Asia-Pacific traditions of Korean samul nori drumming techniques, Filipino kulintang percussion, Japanese shakuhachi 'moment' aesthetic and East Asian string techniques (Korea, Japan, China) interacting with contemporary music. The trajectory from modern violin through to Chinese erhu and Korean kayageum techniques interacting within contemporary composition and cutting edge digital technology forms a thread behind this collection. The sound of Asia-Pacific gongs (Korea, China, Philippines) intersecting with modern percussion as an enlargement of the contemporary music tradition in performance and composition is another angle. Finally the use of the techniques of reed membrane and coloured breath from Western clarinet to Japanese shakuhachi exploring the 'single-note' aesthetic of East Asia within contemporary composition and improvisation also forms a focus.  Wirr 028
