Programme Notes
An Infernal Machine, as the title may imply, takes as its starting a hellish vision of the future where machines and artificial life forms have overtaken their human creators - rather as in the Terminator series of films. This piece was commissioned by The Orchestras of Australia Network for first performance by the Tamworth Youth Orchestra with the financial assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
