The didjeridu is made from the trunk of a eucalyptus tree that has been eaten by termites. It is without doubt one of the oldest instrument in the world. It is played with circular breathing and produces a mysterious sound that is rich in overtones. Because it is rare to find recordings of didjeridu music on the market (as a general rule there are 10 recordings by "white" players to one by an Aborigine), Christian Scholze set off for Australia with the specific aim of recording two of the greatest didjeridu virtuosos playing with composer and connoisseur of the traditional music scene Michael Atherton and numerous guests.

  • Vol. 36 - Australia- WorldNetwork music series 05-City Circle The didjeridu is made from the trunk of a eucalyptus tree that has been eaten by termites. It is without doubt one of the oldest instrument in the world. It is played with circular breathing and produces a mysterious sound that is rich in overtones. Because it is rare to find recordings of didjeridu music on the market (as a general rule there are 10 recordings by "white" players to one by an Aborigine), Christian Scholze set off for Australia with the specific aim of recording two of the greatest didjeridu virtuosos playing with composer and connoisseur of the traditional music scene Michael Atherton and numerous guests. At the lips of didjeridu players Mark Atkins and Janawirri Yiparrka, the continuous stream of air becomes modulated into natural desert and steppe sounds, into old tribal songs and polyphonic melodies with break-neck rhythms. In the studio it was possible to fulfil the dream of recording the didjeridu being played with various other instruments: longer original compositions were created in which the didjeridus harmonised marvellously with bouzouki, accordion, dobro, hurdy-gurdy, soprano saxophone and flute. The session ended in a percussion fireworks that enticed formerly unheard-of sounds from the didjeridus. Ankala produce a sound in which the didjeridu combines organically with the various other instruments in order to tell about the heat and breadth of the country and its age-old culture.

    1. 1. CANBERRA The Australian Capital Territory 2 http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1180657-canberra2/
    2. 2. The Australian Capital Territory is the capital territory of the Commonwealth of Australia and is the smallest self-governing internal territory. It is enclaved within New South Wales and is regularly referred to as Australia's 'Bush Capital'.
    3. 3. The constellation of the Southern Cross is a significant navigational feature of the southern hemisphere, strongly places Australia geographically and has been associated with the continent since its earliest days. The supporters of the coat of arms of Canberra are the Australian black swan, representing the Australian Aborigines, and the European white swan, representing the white settlers. The floral emblem of the ACT is the Royal Bluebell and the faunal emblem is the Gang-gang Cockatoo. Gang-gang Cockatoo (Wikipedia)
    4. 4. The city's design (the Chicago architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Griffin) was heavily influenced by the garden city movement and incorporates significant areas of natural vegetation that have earned Canberra the title of the "bush capital”
    5. 6. This is the most important art building in Australia and it houses more than 100,000 works of art and world-class art exhibitions. People of all cultures and ages are attracted to this place by virtue of the permanent display and travelling exhibitions program. The exhibitions in the Gallery feature works of art from four main areas: Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Asian and international art. The works of art there are a national possession and belong to the Australian people.
    6. 7. A ribbon of red runs through the new National Museum of Australia. Outside, in the Garden of Australian Dreams, it continues in "The Uluru Line," a red carpet that points from Canberra's nearby Parliament House to the continent's ancient center. Then, high above the building, it swoops in sculptural freeform, like some computer-generated rainbow serpent.
    7. 9. For the museum's architect, Howard Raggatt, the red ribbon is a symbol of a nation's destiny untangling in a new millennium. "The story of Australia is a great work in progress," says Raggatt, "not a finished or conclusive event.“
    8. 11. Outside, in the Garden of Australian Dreams, the red ribbon continues in "The Uluru Line," a red carpet that points from Canberra's nearby Parliament House to the continent's ancient center. Then, high above the building, it swoops in sculptural freeform, like some computer-generated rainbow serpent
    9. 13. "The Uluru Line,”
    10. 15. Following the line of the rope through the Hall leads to the permanent exhibition spaces located on three levels.
    11. 16. The Museum Hall, which is the way you enter, is like a huge rope knot seen from the inside. Lots of light and open space with curving walls, windows and ceilings. It is a metaphor for the strands that tie Australians together as a nation, the weaving together of the lives and stories of Australia and Australians.
    12. 19. "The National Museum explores Australia's past, illuminates the present and imagines the future," said director of NMA Craddock Morton. The design is a contemporary interpretation of all the things that have made Australia what it is today.  
    13. 23. Summer temperatures vary between 12 to 27 degrees Celsius, while in winter, temperatures can drop to 1 degree Celsius. Spring mornings tend to be fresh but days are usually sunny and nights crisp clear. Expect cool and windy nights, as well as chilly days during autumn.
