This suite comes from a piece written in 2005 for the Festival of Arts and Activism in Braidwood (near Canberra). The festival honoured the work of Judith Wright, a poet and enviromental activist. The original performance was semi-staged and included many more of Wright’s poems. I worked with storyteller Jane Ahlquist, alternating readings of the poems with solo flute. Later I reworked the music into a suite of five pieces.
