Work Overview

The Blue Labyrinth is one of the hidden gems of the Blue Mountains. The unspoilt landscape consists of an intricate maze of twisted sandstone ridge lines, separated by deep rain-forested gorges with an abundance of clear streams.

The score is in three sections, the first and last featuring a haunting theme for didjeribone. The middle section is exciting, fast and loud. It was developed from driving rhythmic improvations on piano with the didjeridu in B. The work is scored but currently unpublished.
