The third in a series of critically acclaimed suites by composer/pianist Stu Hunter. Beginning with the muse and followed by the gathering - the migration lifts the roof off in it’s scope and intensity. Driving grooves and lush sonic landscapes form powerful scaffolds on which to drape rich harmonic complexity and deep emotive melodies. The world is a seething melting pot like at no time before in it’s history. Ideas and cultural expressions circle the globe in an instant via the net. the migration is a response to modern life, love, family, cultural complexity and the blurring of cultural identity within the global diaspora. – performed by a world class ensemble featuring ten of Australia’s finest musicians.
