quickening moon Lissa Meridan

quickening moon is based on a collection of archival sound recordings, made by the composer and other members of the school of music, victoria university of wellington, new zealand. These recordings are transformed and sculpted, juxtaposed to create a collage of familiar new zealand sonic images, a web of impressions and memories of the past, illusions of the future. Sonic images are swept and morphed, melting in and out of our recognition, they merge and emerge — familiar kiwi sonic icons such as sheep drovers, the rugby commentator, the natural soundscape and the distant echo of children chanting in the playground.

quickening moon was realised in the electroacoustic music studios at Victoria Univeristy of Wellington and premiered at Festival Synthese Bourges 2002.
