Program Note

This piece was originally inspired by the poignant, nostalgic ache I felt upon the realisation
of reaching the end of a life-changing journey that was the
National Women Composer’s Development Program with 3 incredibly talented, kind,
vivacious and fierce women that I am only so lucky to know.
To Ella Macens, Elizabeth Younan and Clare Johnston— thank you for being
my inspirations, a source of drive, my rocks and my therapists for those 2 years.
It felt like a lifetime, may it be a lifetime more of flourishing side by side.
Also to Michael Smetanin my maestro, who mentored me through those years and constantly
pushed for better, for the weird & wonderful ways in which you see potential in my art,
the wine, the laughs, the tears and the triumphs—I will never cease to learn from you.
A big thank you also to my latest Doctoral mentor Matthew Hindson who guided
me through this piece, if it weren’t for your last minute e-mails
and insightful tips it would be nothing like it is today!
