TWO SHORT SONGS
Dreams & Visions
&
Wind & Clouds
Antigone Foster, solo female voice
First performed 1999, Sydney Opera House
Dreams & Visions
Wind & Sky

These two short works featured in The Goddess Returns,  a large multi-media work I composed for an Elektra String Quartet performance project

 

I set about creating some a-cappella sections for solo voice and looping device, to contrast and punctuate the larger tutti sections for voice, string quartet, didjeridu and percussion.

Using this technology allowed the singer to build up layers, live in performance, in real-time, of essentially contrapunctal vocal textures.
