Creation Note

Garden of Bronze was composed as an entry in the Federation Bells Composition Competition 2015.

About the work

I look forward to an eventual first visit to the Federation Bells in Melbourne.  Composed from afar, in Sydney, the images of the upturned bronze bells, each on a pole, to me resemble a flower garden.  I imagine strolling through such a garden, and as such, the evolving groove of the work moves gradually through the different groups of bells.
