Water Spirit Song is part of a suite extracted from Koto Dreaming, a music theatre work featuring the Japanese Butoh Dancer Yumi Umiumare commissioned by David Walker especially for the 2003 Asian Music and Dance Festival held in the Studio of the Sydney Opera House.

Koto Dreaming is dedicated to the koto player Satsuki Odamura, who has recorded the suite for Orpheus Music OM701. The original dance was accompanied by an ensemble of Asian and European instruments including shakuhachi, cor anglais, koto, darbukka and cello.

Water Spirit Song is performed twice in the original work: by the cello (accompanied by a recorded waterfall) and later, offstage, by the cor anglais.

Yānada is dedicated to the oboist Diana Doherty, who gave the first performance on March 1st 1999 in the Sydney Conservatorium Recital Hall.

It is often associated with its companion piece, Ulpirra. Originally published as Two Pieces for Solo Oboe, Yānada and Ulpirra are performed today, widely and frequently, by all the other instruments of the woodwind family.

Mysterious and hauntingly melodic, Yānada takes its title from a word meaning moon in an Aboriginal language of the Sydney area.

The Australian recorder player Jo Dudley commissioned this brief, virtuosic solo.

Ulpirra is an Aboriginal word meaning pipe or flute. It has been performed and recorded on many different treble instruments apart from the recorder: piccolo, flute, oboe, B-flat and E-flat clarinets, a special version for bass clarinet with handclapping accompaniment in Enyato IV, and soprano or alto saxophone.

Being short and snappy it is especially useful as an encore piece for recitals.
