Some very exciting news: My Symphony No.2 that was commissioned by Lynchpin will be recorded by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra at the Rudolfinum concert hall in Prague!!
This is the large collaborative science/arts project that I have been alluding to for some time. I have now been working with with PhD candidates Nick Roden and Rob Johnston (Profiles below) for nearly two years in pulling together the science that has informed the composition of this large scale composition.

Centered around the topic of ‘the other CO2 problem’ – ocean acidification – and linked with the vital role of phytoplankton in planetary metabolism, this is an extensive creative venture in sound and image through which we want to generate a different experience of ocean science.
Please read more about the project and Lynchpin at the Lynchpin website.
I am SO looking forward to the recording of your Symphony being available on CD. Heard about this at the end of last year and heard your interview on Tas ABC local radio in early January. Congratulations!
Imagine there’s an awful lot happening behind the scenes but wish you the very best in getting this important project – and wonderful Symphony – to fruition. Can’t wait!
I look forward to hearing the Symphony one day as part of the contemporary Australian repertoire performed by Aust. Symphony Orchestras. Try the Adel Symphony for a World Premiere (with huge screen as backdrop!??) We’ll be there!
