about

This album is a distillation of the many long-term relationships I’ve had with Australian composers. The music forms a body of work, spanning fifteen years, that provides a glimpse into my percussive language and a twenty-first century Australian percussion sound. 
 
In many instances the pieces on this album were the germ for larger scale compositions and collaborations, forming some of the major works for Speak Percussion, the organisation I currently direct. Sitting around these solo works are other percussion solos, trios, quartets, sextets, twelvetets, mixed ensemble works and an opera. Each of these projects have cumulatively deepened my creative rapport with the represented artists. 
 
Major works of note include Liza Lim’s Atlas of the Sky (opera for solo soprano, 3 percussion soloists and 20 person crowd), Alex Garsden’s tolle lege, tolle lege… (spatialised percussion quartet with electronics), a co-composition with Robin Fox entitled TRANSDUCER (quartet, live electronics and eight channel speaker system), James Rushford’s Whorl Would Equal Reaches (percussion sextet with electronics), Thomas Meadowcroft’s So Long Country (mixed ensemble and electronics) and Anthony Pateras’ Flesh and Ghost (percussion twelvetet), among others.
 
I am attracted to sound that speaks more to concept than to musical convention and in performance more than concert.  In Agglomeration of Measurement my artistic practice is articulated through experimental techniques exploring feedback, microtonality, micro-percussion, post instrumental practice and an investigation into broader non-musical concepts.  
 
I am indebted to these composers for their exceptional artistry and collaboration and to Speak Percussion for providing the extraordinary platform for these works to flourish.
