Notes and Editorial Reviews

A new CD that demonstrate the musical and cultural bridges built by the academic staff and postgraduate students at the School of Music-Conservatorium at Monash University, and their colleagues in other parts of Australia, Korea and Romania.

This CD represents new music from three distant areas - East Europe, North Asia and Australasia. For many decades Romanian, Korean and Australian musical voices have been mapping out their cultural identities in relative isolation. Romanian composers were cocooned from the wider musical community due to their country's repressive communist regime. Korean composers only reconnected with their musical roots in the 1960s after the years of Japanese occupation in the earlier part of the
Read more twentieth century. Australian composers, while not enduring political constraints, were geographically isolated from the main activities in Europe and America.

While the music contained in this recording might not branch too far from a European musical epicentre, they do demonstrate the bridges that have been built by the academic staff and postgraduate students at the School of Music-Conservatorium at Monash University, and their colleagues in other parts of Australia, Korea and Romania. At the present time, music from Australia, Korea and Romania forms a significant part of the musicological and performance-based research activity within the School. This CD therefore constitutes a tangible research outcome for the School and highlights the strengthened individual intersections that have been developed between musicians, composers and musicologists rather than the reinforcement of any globalised cultural world view.
