New Day

Flowers at 'the prom', southern australia

'New Day' comprises a series of new music pieces written for piano, based on nature's sounds, these recorded  in 15 special places around Australia and designed to celebrate the dawning of the new day

    

'New Day' was originally made on CD for ABC (national) fm radio, to be played on each of the 15 days of the Sydney Olympic games in 2000; we have now produced a version especially for download .. see below 

Australian sound environments are very diverse in their content ... pieces may be as simple as birds singing, people talking, engines, storms, frogs and crickets; they may include instrumental pieces played in response to these sounds 

The spirit of place may be heard in its sounds 

I travelled to fifteen different places throughout Australia recording the natural sounds of wildlife, water and vegetation of the region at daybreak .. then writing new music now blended into these 'modern sound pictures'

These fifteen pieces represent tropical north Queensland, the Northern Territory, coastal New South Wales and the Victorian highlands, filled with the sounds of gang gang cockatoos, wattle birds, corellas (parrots), jumping fish, frogs, crickets and a thunderstorm

 

You may hear a 60 second snippet of all the New Day tracks ..
