When I walk in nature I come across happy places that ask me to sit and listen. When time arrives I hear its music and I play it.
I first started hearing music in nature as a child in the rainforests of Geera, Mt Keira and since then all my music had reflected its wonders of space and time. After 38 years in Spain I came back as I wanted to write more music and experience more of its wonders.
I told the Dharawal and GunaiKurnai Aboriginal Elders of my wishes and with their guidance I was taught the Aboriginal Dreaming stories I needed to help me understand better the emotions these special places were trying to teach me.
Dharawal Dreamtime compositions partially funded through RMIT Vice Chancellor Indigenous Research Fellowship for Dr Jodi Edwards, Dharawal Custodian.
GunaiKurnai dreamtime compositions partially funded by Creative Arts Victoria and supervised by GunaiKurnai traditonal custodian Wayne Thorpe.
Personally I thank the Dharawal and GunaiKurnai Elders for their trust, guidance and inspiration as they are the invaluable key to help us live in harmony with nature.
Aboriginal Lore (culture) has language that gives me perspective to be more aware of what I need to listen to so I can develóp more creative and personal work that produces the healing effect I need in my daily life at every moment of existence.
Styles and judgment give way to a childish curiosity of infinite potential. Nature is who we are.
