Cloud Hands

By Tony Wheeler

Regular price $17.00 Sale

Duet for Guqin and Zhong Ruan, c.8'35

Cloud hands, or yun shou, is a form of movement in taiji quan (t’ai ch’i chuan) and some other Chinese martial arts, which is used in combat to deflect an opponent’s attacking punch or strike. Its main characteristic is that although appearing to be a very soft and fluid movement, in essence it possesses a high degree of internal strength which is transmitted to the opponent. Various aspects of yun shou are expressed in this piece.
 
Composed 2014.

Craters of Rhea - Double Bass

By Keyna Wilkins

Regular price $14.00 Sale

Double bass and loop pedal, c.8'00. Level of difficulty:  A.Mus.  

The composer imagines the craggy and sharp but beautiful shapes of the ice craters of Rhea (second largest of Saturn's moons) and interprets them musically in the opening motifs. The loop pedal for electric double bass is explored with use of a repeated and recorded 5 bar theme over which there is some notated lines and some structured improvisation, giving the work an optimistic resolution.

      Devils at Dusk

      By Natasha Trinkle

      Regular price $14.00 Sale

      Cello and piano, c.4'45.  Grade AMus

      Devils at Dusk begins and ends with improvised sections in which the cellist is encouraged to create a soundscape depicting either Tasmanian Devils or an Australian bush setting. These sections also provide an opportunity for developing cellists to explore extended technique and find different sounds that they enjoy creating with the cello. Composed 2015
      Published under the Wirripang New Composition scheme. 

      Natasha Trinkle is a freelance cellist and cello teacher living in Melbourne. Her interests include the use of cello in traditional and folk music genres, as well as composition and Australian improvised music. Natasha began learning piano at the age of five and cello at the age of nine. Cello became her main focus and in 2000 she completed a Bachelor of Music at the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide. Following this she began exploring the role of cello in various contexts, in particular Scottish folk music, jazz, and improvised music. It was this passion for improvising that prompted Natasha to complete Honours in cello performance at Monash University in 2015. During this time, she also began experimenting with composition, and with support from staff at Monash, Natasha was able to integrate improvisation and composition into her Honours performance program. In November 2015, Natasha Trinkle won first prize for Devils at Dusk in the inaugural ANZCA composition competition at Monash University.
