Getting Frank Gehry – ABC 1 Tues 8th Sept @ 9:30pm

On Tuesday 8th September, get an exclusive glimpse into the creative process of the world’s greatest living architect, Frank Gehry, as he creates his very first building in Australia – the University of Technology’s new business school.

I had a great time writing the music for this wonderful documentary, directed by Sally Aitken, and edited by John Pleffer. I experimented with ideas of jazz, minimalism and klezmer to create the music for this film. The music was brought to life by clarinettist Paul Cutland and viola player Virginia Comerford.

WATCH IT on ABC 1, Tuesday 8th September at 9:30pm.

As Gehry would say ” I’m up for it!”

Blown Away on ABC1 Tuesday, 23rd December at 8:30pm

On Christmas Eve 1974, Cyclone Tracy devastated Darwin. Tracy is one of the worst natural disasters to strike Australia, and the subsequent evacuation of most of the cities population was an extraordinary and highly contentious military-style operation that is unparalleled in our history.

Now, 40 years later, many of the myths about the disaster and its aftermath can be examined, and stories that have gone untold, including those of Aboriginal people, can be revealed. Is it true that many traditional Aboriginal people left Darwin before the cyclone hit or was this just a convenient rumour that saw authorities dodge their duty of care to Aboriginal people?Blown Away promo poster wide

Blown Away is based on in-depth eyewitness interviews, immersive animation, and extensive archival material including extraordinary newsreel and stunning photographs, intensified by an evocative musical score. Blown Away is written and directed by Danielle Maclean, produced by Rachel Clements, produced and edited by James Bradley, with original music score by Caitlin Yeo.   Tune in to ABC1 on Tuesday 23rd of December at 8:30pm to see this remarkable documentary.
