Stroma presented a major tribute to Douglas Lilburn on the day of his 100th birthday. Nine Echoes features nine new works written by New Zealand composers, each work responding to one of Lilburn's Nine Short Pieces for piano, played in the concert by Emma Sayers. The new pieces are as diverse as the composers themselves, who range from major figures such as Eve de Castro-Robinson and John Elmsly, to recent graduates, and postgraduate students such as 21-year-old Stephen Clothier.

LILBURN: Nine Short Pieces - Emma Sayers (pno)

BALLARD: Meditation; DOWNIE: The Lilburn Hop; DE CASTRO-ROBINSON: No. 3; KER; pulse-echoes; CLOTHIER: A Stable Reference; FISHER: Dream 6; WEBSTER: Number 7; NORRIS:  Mesophase; ELMSLY: In October Light - Stroma/Hamish McKeich

Composer Cosmology

Crab Nebula

As astrophysicists like Neil deGrasse Tyson learn more about the cosmos and present their often strange and wondrous findings to the public, the creative mind can’t help but be captivated and inspired, and composers are certainly no exception. From super strings to quarks, multiple dimensions to M theory, we’ll play several imaginative works by composers captivated by our universe. (WFMT)
