    New Sounds
  • Music from Australia

    New music, (and in some cases, organized sound) from Australia makes up this New Sounds program, including music by Peter Sculthorpe, his "Little Nourlangie," a portrait of a rock outcropping in Kakadu National Park in northern Australia. Kakadu is the second largest national park in the world, where generations of Bininj/Mungguy have lived for tens of thousands of years.  It is home to 68 mammals, more than 120 reptiles, 26 frogs, more than 2,000 plants and over 10,000 species of insects. We'll also hear a work that consists solely of the natural sounds of Kakadu Park, sampled and altered. And more music from Australian ensembles and composers.
