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.

Program note
A phoenix - is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colourful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends).

It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes,  from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again.

The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self.
