Yet another soft day in gray Paree: ideal weather for taking in organ music at Notre Dame and a visit to the relatively untouristed Musée de Cluny. Here's another organist found there on a misericord carving. Having fun with other vintage hardware at CCMIX, pursuing early music (in electronic music terms) with instruments such as Xenakis' UPIC and GENDYN.
Clarity are launching their new CD, second door on the left (Move MCD 340) at various Australian locations, starting on Sunday 22 July at 3pm in the foyer of the National Library of Australia. The CD includes my clarinet quartet Starling, written for the ensemble; and it features works by fellow Canberra composers Sandy France and Ruth Lee Martin. The Blue Bear recently recorded the voices of Faith Bandler, Evelyn Scott and Sir Laurence Street for a sound installation and sculptural work in Reconciliation Place, Canberra, to be opened shortly. And at Dartington Hall in Devon on August 1st, Lowri Blake plays two of my pieces for voice, cello and electronics: RockFace and Verklärter Bungalow. The programme includes works by Domenico Gabrielli, John Keane, Peter Sculthorpe and Judith Weir.
