Notes and Editorial Reviews

Luxembourg-born Australian composer Georges Lentz’s 60-minute solo guitar work Ingwe (an Aboriginal word meaning night) is a truly extraordinary achievement. Here, heavy metal meets musical metaphysics, as shrieking amplified sound clashes with the spirituality of Indigenous Australian cultures. Conceived as part of an open-ended cycle of compositions with the religiously inspired title Caeli enarrant…(The Heavens are Telling, Psalm XIX), it is at once a nod to guitar heroes such as Jimi Hendrix, and a monumental meditation on the human condition, the bleak vastness of the Australian desert and the awe-inspiring radiance of its night skies.
