"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 oral histories and historical documents using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 k
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."
