Every Living Creature Is Due To Arrive Somewhere

Every Living Creature Is Due To Arrive Somewhere is a composition built around the themes of Joan Lindsay’s book ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’.┬áThe sound material from which the composition originates consists mainly of recordings of melting ice: using hydrophones frozen in ice water, I recorded several melting processes such as pouring hot water, or rubbing it with a plectrum. This deeply unpredictable character of such sonic material is used to capture the essence of nature’s uncontrollability, portraying its contrast with the human desire for control. The piece is divided in four sections: Infinite and Identical, Hanging Rock, Control and Out of Control, Transfiguration and Entrance.
