Gardens of Stone

by Amanda Handel & Michael Jackson

Luxurious harmonies on the piano are set within a bedrock of rich didjeridu playing. Reflecting a journey through mountain landscapes, the music moves between highly charged and powerfully rhythmic passages, into areas of delicate sonority.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Gardens of Stone" is a vibrant and unique venture in Australian Contemporary Classical music, initiated by Amanda Handel (composer/pianist) in collaboration with Michael Jackson (didjeridus & didjeribone).

Crafted with luxurious dissonances, the piano writing explores extended modal harmonies against the bedrock of fixed didjeridu pitches. This unusual acoustic combination creates a wealth of resonance and surprising timbral effects. Much more than just an accompaniment or drone, the didjeridu plays an integral role within the texture and phrasing of Amanda’s compositions. Michael plays a battery of didjeridus and the didjeribone with astonishing virtuosity and a richly complex tone, using a large repertoire of rhythms, overtones and vocalisations. The track list features a solo piece on each of the two instruments, and the album closes with a spontaneous improvisation where Amanda and Michael leap into unchartered territory, eliciting a strange and exciting new realm of sound.

Over an hour of playing time on 14 tracks recorded live in Studios 301, Sydney April 2012.
Produced by Llew Kiek.
