Lunar; The Moon; Seven Moons
New release: Lunar; The Moon; Seven Moons
We have been honoured to work with the inimitable qanun virtuoso Vahideh Eisaei, creating Lunar; The Moon; Seven Moons
for qanun, string quartet, four female voices, and electronics, co-composed by our very own Biddy Connor and Lizzy Welsh.
Lunar; The Moon; Seven Moons was composed and recorded on the unceded lands of the Woi Wurrung (Wurundjeri), Boon Wurrung, and Dja Dja Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nations, the traditional owners and custodians of this land. We pay our respects to elders past and present, as we respectfully add some vibrations to the ongoing resonance created by First Nations communities across this beautiful continent over tens of thousands of years. Sovereignty has never been ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
