The UK première performance – a wonderfully vivid account – was given by soprano Deborah Kayser and mezzo Ute Wassermann with Elision Ensemble, directed by Carl Rosman; it took place at Bates Mill during the 2009 Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. A CD of the work by these performers is unfortunately no longer readily available outside Australia; however, somewhat expensive copies can be procured directly from the label, ABC Classics. Their website has the booklet available to download free in PDF format—i highly recommend doing this, as it contains the entire sung text with translations, plus explanatory texts, diagrams of the work’s structure and images of the accompanying art installation by Richard Crow, which at the first performance in Australia was an integral part of the work.
