Photos from Australia
Thanks again to all our backers for helping to make our concert at the Antarctic Music Festival a great success!
In addition to performing in the festival and speaking about my work at the Antarctica Conference, I was invited to play kelp flute and Antarctic limpet shells live on the radio at ABC (that's the Australian Broadcasting Corporation) Canberra. Also, harpist Alice Giles, ice musician Terje Isungset, and I were featured in an ABC television news segment about the festival and conference. You can watch the TV segment online here: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-06-24/ice-music/2771178
Here are some photos from Canberra, including the obligatory kangaroo shot. I was so busy working on music that I didn't even see a kangaroo until my sixth day in Australia. I was thrilled to finally encounter some, and one of my favorite Australian sounds was the low thump of kangaroos hopping through the forest.
