QPAC are excited to present the premiere of a new work by acclaimed Australian didgeridoo player and composer, William Barton.

There is a tale that the finale of this Finnish masterpiece was inspired by the call of swans. That may well be true, but the journey this musical work takes you on transcends any simple explanation.
