The National Indigenous Fire Workshop is all about calling country back to health through listening to the land. My foot in is that my partner Victor Steffensen leads the workshop, and I'm always in his ear about resonance music. So he called me out for this one and asked me to do a performance. Working with two young Yuin girls Colleen & Dakota and Indigenous musician Rachel Shields, we discovered the resonance of the Amphitheatre at Bundanon Arthur Boyd Estate, Illaroo NSW. We shared our findings in two workshops.

On Thursdays in 2017 I could be found playing the exhibitions at the Kickarts Gallery, Centre of Contemporary Arts, Cairns. After playing over a hundred artworks, each one was still different, and all fascinating, surprising journeys. I was joined by singer Deline Briscoe, harpist Tracy-Jane Sullivan from England, and Muso Dave Mulligan. Each player and viewer has a different perspective and these add to the dimensionality of the experience. The process of surrendering to the present moment, to engage with that beyond what you can predict is a powerful experience.
