'Coranderrk' takes us on a musical trip through in the Healesville sanctuary - an Australian wildlife park - situated about 80km from Melbourne in southern Australia .. this sanctuary provides a habitat for vast numbers of birds and animals ..
Nature's sounds recorded in the sanctuary are ‘orchestrated’ as musical instruments; the sounds of waterbirds, lyrebirds, emus, water, magpies, brolgas - and many more - being combined with flutes, harps and keyboards to create a wonderful gentle australian new music with universal appeal
The name comes from an Aboriginal settlement located just near the present wildlife sanctuary
