So many rivers – 10′ (2010)

Composer Notes

This work endeavours to portray concepts that are both literal and allegorical in nature. The composition begins as it ends, with a calm, almost meditative state, but in between its curves and meanderings we detect the gradual emergence of almost hidden movement – the subtle shifts of mood, the gathering momentum with hints of playfulness, the growing turbulence, the troubled and sometimes tormented complexity that may eventually find its way through to a flowing serenity, and not to forget the ‘passing nod’ that reflects the historical and cultural influence of the various regions that may be encountered on this journey.

JOIN US MAY 29TH 6PM! St David’s is being put up for commercial tender despite a massive fundraising effort over the past few years to help stop that from happening. This special building, with its glorious Great Hall, is not only an important place of Anzac remembrance but also a vibrant centre for music with huge potential to become a shared rehearsal and performance hub for singers and musicians. We got together with some of NZ’s best recently to create an online concert to help raise funds towards this worthy cause. PLEASE help us by sharing widely and buying a ticket (@ rememberthem.nz) to tune in on 29th May. At the very least you will have access to an incredible line up of musical talent and all proceeds will go to a good cause. Win win!
