Katy Abbott - Indoor Yachting

Katy Abbott - Indoor Yachting
Katy Abbott's music leads the listener through a narrative of sound, exploring concepts of home, place and human nature, frequently exhibiting a cheeky humour and cleverly juxtaposing contemporary flavours on traditional settings.

Abbott's compositions have been brought to life by leading Australian ensembles including Halcyon, The Song Company, Syzygy Ensemble, Ironwood Ensemble and several major symphony orchestras. Her works have been performed internationally and featured in Australian and international music festivals, including the Melbourne and Perth International Festivals and 2012 Saxophone Congress in UK.

Demonstrating her versatile creative talent, her body of work incorporates orchestra, chamber and music for voice - an area where she exhibits a particular flair.

Abbott is the recipient of many awards including the Albert H. Maggs Award for Composition, Boston Metro Opera Prize for Composition for 'The Domestic Sublime'.

Abbott's debut CD Sunburnt Aftertones: The Chamber Music of Katy Abbott (Move Records) was released in 2010, with two subsequent discs, this time of vocal and choral music, currently in production for 2013.

Katy Abbott lives in Melbourne and works as Lecturer in Composition at University of Melbourne.

About this track...

Shaving, coat-hangers and changing sheets; all part of the repetitive, yet comforting domestic rituals familiar to everyone’s day yet so entrenched and considered so unremarkable, they are rarely acknowledged in conversation.

Movement 2 of 6 explores the moment when changing sheets; watching the sheets float down onto the bed.
