Song for Imberombera

By Michael Atherton

Regular price $15.00 Sale

SSA choir and percussion, c.3'30

Commissioned by Gondwana Vloices. 

The title, Song for Imberombera, alludes to an Aboriginal creation story recounted by Burnum Burnum in his Aboriginal Australia (Angus & Robertson, 1988, p.16), where he refers to a Dreaming legend about the arrival of the great Earth Mother, a symbol of fertility and creator of life. Among the Gagadju people of Arnhem Land, Imberombera came from across the sea arriving on the coast with her womb full of children. She travelled far and wide, forming the hills, creeks, plants and animals, leaving behind many of her spirit children.
Composed in 1997.

ta-ka-tin-go-ba-kin

By Michael Atherton

Regular price $25.00 Sale

ta-ka-tin-go-ba-kin is presented in four percussion staves for non-pitched percussion, c.8-10 mins

Flexibility in the choice of instruments is encouraged. However, the fourth stave provides an important time-line function. Ideally, a double cowbell (gankokwe) should provide an anchor throughout epecially in the soloing sections. The "open" scoring encourages the choice of a variety of membranophones using paired sticks, stick and hand, or hands (sogo, kaganu, djembe, congas, bongos, bodhran, darabuka, gaval, bendir, changgo, davul, surdo and cuica); and idiophones such as shakers and rattles.

Tuned In

By Michael Atherton

Regular price $45.00 Sale

A personal collection of more than 80 tunes from Ancient and Medieval to Folk and World music to Renaissance, Baroque and Classical as well as the composer's orignal compositions. Some text for songs has been included because of the interdependence of words and music.

Tunes comprise melodic material that is manna for the composer or improviser who collect, adapts and hand on.  This is my reason for collecting, arranging, composing and sharing the compilation, 'Tuned In'. ...I am a conduit for sharing what I have heard, what has been given, including my own tunes.  Michael Atherton.
Compiled 2012
