Computer generated sounds permeate most Australians’ lives on a daily basis. Our ears are filled with the hum of computer fans, the click of computer keyboards and software chimes. Many of these sounds, particularly the sound of a dial-up modem, were the starting point for Nett Interference, a short fanfare for Symphonic Wind Band. The piece captures the hustle and bustle of modern life in Australia through its use of relentless and driving percussion parts and manic, hiccupping time changes. Superimposed onto these persistent percussion parts is a low brass theme suggesting, perhaps, that all is not right in this fast and modern world. Taran Carter
