Pre-sales for Second Echo Ensemble’s “Contested Land” show have just started! I was lucky enough to participate in this wonderful project in early 2017, where I composed a short piece, which was recorded by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. You can listen to it here!
A dear colleague of mine, Tom Misson was also involved in the project, and wrote the ‘love’ theme, while I wrote the ‘war’ music. It was a bit of a role-reversal; usually I’m the one to write sappy stuff, while he has such bangers as his Piano Sonata and ‘Saturday Night Tuberculosis’.
Second Echo Ensemble are a fantastic group, and received rave reviews for their production ‘By My Hand’ which was on earlier in the year. ‘Contested Land’ will surely not be one to miss.
