I am very excited to have the wonderful Australian Voices and Camerata-Queensland's Chamber Orchestra premiere my new 60-minute work for choir and string ensemble. This work features lyrics by Pearly Black and is inspired by recent events in Hasankeyf, an ancient city in Turkey which has recently been flooded for a controversial dam, washing away 12,000 years of history. Sinking Cities explores erasing histories, as well as themes of loss, modernisation, short term gains, and the replacement of traditional lifestyles.
The world premiere of Sinking Cities will be live streamed exclusively via the Australian Digital Concert Hall.
Sinking Cities is supported by Arts Queensland’s First Night Showcase – Judith Wright Arts Centre Fund, Australia Council, and Phonographic Performance Company of Australia.
