William Barton

Kalkadunga (CD)

The works on this CD reflect the explosion that occurred in William Barton`s career following the mainstage success of Earth Cry in 2002, where he was in demand not just as a performer but also as a composer himself. As Sculthorpe began recasting his own orchestral music to include didjeridu, so too he became not just a personal friend but also a musical mentor to the 21-year-old Barton, teaching him the rudiments of Western musical notation and correcting William`s original scores that increasingly came to be commissioned by major musical ensembles both in Australia and internationally.
