ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gill Civil, a New Zealand composer/pianist now based on the Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada, has long been inspiring professional dancers and ballet students alike with her energy infused piano music. She has worked for major dance companies in Australasia and Canada and during the eighties was a full-time accompanist at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia. Before moving to Canada in 1990 Gill recorded and toured with several bands - including the renowned pop band "Crowded House", in which she played keyboards on their 1986 Australian tour. Gill has also composed music for many different mediums including a work for the Australian Dance Theatre, film scores and orchestral pieces. In May 2008 her first choral work "Yondi", was premiered in theatres on the Sunshine Coast. Since 2009 her song "Isol", originally composed for her alternative band "Marie and the Atom", has been featured as the title music for a Television New Zealand series called "The Good Word". Gill currently works as a dance accompanist at The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts and is in the process of recording "Dancing Keys 3" which is due for release in 2012.

REVIEWS:

"Just a note to say I did receive "Dancing Keys" and it is lovely. I teach courses in elementary and secondary music and arts education at the University of Regina, and I plan to recommend this CD to my students. These short pieces are absolutely perfect for encouraging creative dance with children - and the alternate titles are very helpful for stimulating the imagination. What a great education resource!"

Denise Morstad, M.Ed., Chair of Music Education, Faculty of Education, University of Regina
