Mandolin Orchestra, c.7'30

The music is in two main sections constructing melodies out of short repetitive fragments with energetic rhythmic ostinato patterns. Rhythmic impetus is one of the principal elements in Illawarra Dances. The rhythmic devices employed include the use of additive rhythms (alternating bars of 11/8 and 13/8) in the second main section of the piece that, along with the syncopated rhythms in the first section, continually propel the music along.
Composed 2009
