MEETING POINTS SERIES: DJIRIBAWAL
Djirbawal is a song cycle by Yuin woman, Brenda Gifford for the musicians of the Australian Art Orchestra, originally commissioned for the 2020 Canberra International Music Festival, and adapted to include electronic soundscapes and the voice of the composer speaking in Language, for its Melbourne premiere.
The work began as a sketch to capture the essence of the elements: Bagan (Earth); Ngadjung (Water); Miriwa (Sky); and Ganji (Fire). In the composer’s own words, 'Bagan grounds us, Ngadjung is flowing and renewing. Miriwa is vast and open and Ganji can be fast and destructive.'
As the first concert of AAO’s 2022 Meeting Points Series, Djiribawal will be supported by an improvisation featuring Amos Roach (Didgeridoo and Clapsticks) Adrian Sherriff (Trombone and Shakuhachi).
