Acacia Quartet and I speak & play at this activism panel at Carriageworks this weekend. An honor to be telling stories of ACT UP’s bravery. Come celebrate and remember. I’m learning a lot in this 40th anniversary of the 1978 protest. Thank you Mardi Gras. https://buff.ly/2GpY6lZ

“If it could only be like this always – always summer, always alone, the fruit always ripe and Aloysius in a good temper...” ― ‘Lord Sebastian Flyte’, Evelyn Waugh: Brideshead Revisited

Deep, heartfelt thanks to Australia Council and the peers for funding this imaginative venture from ANAM. 100 years ago, Debussy died leaving his final project of 6 sonatas incomplete. There are no sketches, but he specified the 13 instruments in detail. So for ANAM to premiere throughout the 2018 Debussy Centenary, I am composing the 3 unwritten sonatas, to be performed alongside Debussy's own sonatas… no pressure!

“As soon as I turned the key I saw it hanging, the colour of fire and sunset. the colour of flamboyant flowers. ‘If you are buried under a flamboyant tree, ‘ I said, ‘your soul is lifted up when it flowers. Everyone wants that.’ – Jean Rhys, Wide Sargasso Sea

The days .... come and go like muffled and veiled figures, sent from a distant friendly party; but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away. –Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I love living here. Warships and upturned shopping carts equally at home in Woolloomooloo Bay.
