Programme Notes

Matthew Hindson Technologic 145 Technologic 145 is a work in three movements. The first is a slow-moving, grinding introduction, which features a didjeridu-like cello solo. The second movement is an energetic and vibrant work featuring virtuosic and rhythmic playing from most members of the ensemble. The final movement acts a slower, more contemplative summary. As the title suggests, technologic 145 is influenced by aspects of techno music, particularly its repetitive structures and driving rhythms. The work was a finalist in the 1998 ABC Young Composer of the Year competition. Matthew Hindson


‘The piece is exceptionally well scored for the medium, beginning with a gritty cello monologue offset by subtle shape-shifting manoeuvres. There is a relentless momentum behind much of the writing. The sonorities are full-blooded and vibrant and the excitement never wanes.’ Herald Sun (Johanna Selleck), 6 August 2002
