Birds Calling on Waterfall Way by Michael Hannan

Score

Piano solo. 

The pied butcherbird and magpie lark (peewee) calls  captured my attention and inspired this work.  Birds Calling on Waterfall Way is in three main sections. The first and last employ the haunting melodies of the pied butcherbird, a bird that has found its way into many of my piano works beginning with Resonances I (1987). The middle section explores the rhythmic variety of the calls of the magpie lark.

Composed 2015

Bracefell's Story by Michael Hannan

Score

Baritone and piano, c.17'00
Bracefell represents an early example of a white person who has come to terms with aboriginal life, and has received wisdom about the land.  The musical treatment contrasts the oppressive violence of his life in the penal colony (section I) with the freedom of his tribal existence (section II).  The third section of the work depicts the chaos resulting from the white intruders from the shipwreck and rescue of Eliza Frazer.  Their failure to conform to aboriginal ways in turn leads to their deaths or degradation.   Composed 1990

Callisto: Music for Fairlight CMI by Michael Hannan

CD

 
 Michael Hannan
The CD Callisto features works composed for the Fairlight Computer Musical Instrument (CMI) which is the world's first digital music sampler, a product of the late 1970s. The recording also provides some documentation of a phase of Michael Hannan’s development as a composer, during which he was an insider of a ground breaking project generated by the CMI at that time, being 1984.

Each work conveys images that draw one away to other worlds, in the case of Callisto (the largest moon of Jupiter) to a sound analysis of laughter, a series of studies, a sonata written in the style of Conlon Nancarrow, through the inspiration generated by animal calls, a tribute to Slonimsky, finally and intriguingly an attempt to stimulate the conditions by which a thought trance is induced.
