Michael Finnissy : Red Earth

Red Earth reflects the parched landscape of the Central Australian Desert through a haze of string writing, vivid orchestral colours and the drone of didjeridoos, working towards a savage and shocking climax.

"Finnissy's Red Earth is built from shifting blocks, smears and shocks of sound. It develops through primeval evolutions - eruptions, blossomings, ominous undulations - rather than crafted convolutions, demanding an appreciation of nature's ageless, forbidding beauty."
Classic CD 1997
