click above to listen to the string quartet score by John Thorn.
"As the composer on the project my aims are to produce the folowing items.
1). A suite for string quartet based on locations around Lake Hindmarsh such
as Shultz Beach, 4 mile beach, Pela, Jeparit 1910, Fishing trip etc... 2) A
song cycle based on collected. oral histories and historical documents using
the words of the local residents especially about the lake when full and the
lake when dry Ideally this could be developed into 3). a Cantata to be
performed at the Lutheran church at Pela which posseses a remarkable 150 year
old pipe organ As well I am open to spontaneous compositions after interacting
with the artists and townspeople during my time in the district."
