Premiered by Jodie Rottle and Liz John on 19 August 2015 at Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University (Brisbane, Australia). Written for the Amazing Women Series at QCGU.
Program notes: Everyday (2015) explores the sounds and humour alive in mundane activities. It is a reflection on finding inspiration amongst the simplest tasks and the importance of imagination well beyond the years of youth. Using an electric toothbrush, voice, and singing bowls, Everyday creates a sparkling, imaginary, and fantastical pedestal upon which virtuosic performances can take place despite their otherwise ordinary appearance. Everyday highlights the ritual of routine and the expectations we have as 21st century humans. Everyday is optimism.
