William Barton

Kalkadungu (CD)

The works on this CD reflect the explosion that occurred in William Barton's career following the main stage 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.
