Notes and Editorial Reviews

Carl Vine first came to prominence in Australia as a composer of music for dance, with over 20 dance scores to his credit. His catalog now includes 6 symphonies, 4 concertos, music for film, television and theatre, electronic music and many solo and chamber works. Although primarily a composer of "modern" classical music he has undertaken tasks as diverse as arranging the Australian National Anthem and writing music for the Closing Ceremony of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics (the Sydney 2000 presentation). Robert Marchand, the director of The Potato Factory writes: "Potato Factory was a joy to make. First there was the novel - huge, sprawling, bursting with larger-than-life characters - then the era it was set in: London was never so colorful, Read more the penal settlement in Australia never so forbidding. The music was as big a joy as all of this. I had the good fortune to find in Carl Vine a composer of exceptional imagination and subtlety. It was a fantastic feeling to watch the program take on an extra dimension as the music blended in, a wonderful mix of humor, tact, grandeur and emotion. The final joy is that the melodies and themes of Potato Factory will haunt and enchant long after the mini-series has gone to air and the novel has been put down." Read less
