ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music for 'Weaving Water' started as a gift for the composer's friend, Ludmila Doneman, on the occasion of her 70th birthday. The play 'Weaving Water', a one-woman show devised by Ludmila and her husband Michael as part memoir and part metaphor for life stories, was first performed under the name '70' in March 2015, and was further developed into the play 'Weaving Water' premiered by Ludmila in Brisbane, Australia, on 18 September 2015.

The music was specifically written to act as 'punctuation points' within the performance, and as a means of reflection. The music acts as a metaphor for the weaving of stories, the connections we make with each other, and the flow of life. The four ‘punctuation points’ are:

Section 1 – Reflections
(after the theme for ‘Dona Rosita, the Spinster’, composed by Peta Williams in 1977. A connection to the past with Ludmila and Michael Doneman, brought into the present).
Reflections on the stories of the past lead to the stories in the present moment.

Section 2 – Weaving
Journeying. Between stories. Weaving our stories. Women’s voices, women’s stories. The flow of water, of life, of story.

Section 3 – Flowing
The flow of life, of story, continuing.
Water flowing, moving, changing. The weaving and the inter-flow of our lives, our stories.

Section 4 – Woven.
We weave and we are woven.
Weaving, woven, flowing. Our stories connect, intersect, build, grow; our lives are interwoven. Resolution. We are made of stories.
