Notes and Editorial Reviews

Anne Boyd has enjoyed a distinguished career as a composer and music educator. She graduated from the University of Sydney and from the University of York in England. She has held academic positions at the University of Sussex and at the University of Hong Kong, where she was the founding Head of the Department of Music. In 1990, she became the first woman to be appointed Professor of Music at the University of Sydney. Through one of her teachers, Peter Sculthorpe, she inherited a lifelong fascination with the musical cultures of South East Asia, especially Japan and Indonesia. She regards the ancient court music of Japan as a primary influence, the closest musical representation of the arid outback landscape of her early childhood. In her Read more mind, composition is viewed as essentially spiritual and she is much interested in the idea of music as meditation, as a means of changing states of consciousness. Her music is based on the intersection of Christian love with Buddhist silence. Read less
