Primordial is a 60-minute soundscape for Piano, Electronics with Diverse Media inspired by the Ediacara Fossils, Nilpena Station, South Australia. Composed by Constantine Koukias for Gabriella Smart (piano).

A unique merging of science and sound – Primordial is a visceral listening experience that re-enacts the shifting of tectonic plates to form the Flinders Ranges.

It’s a journey through time to the first sign of life on earth with the appearance of the Ediacara fossils. The sonic world of PRIMORDIAL reflects the immense landscape of the Ediacara Fossil field on the edge of the Australian desert.

Composer Constantine Koukias imagines the sound of shifting tectonic plates through manipulated piano preparations and electronics to create cascading waves of sound. The piano as we know it is reinvented, its resonance reflecting a haunting, fragile sound world. Gabriella Smart pounds and caresses the piano, cajoling beautiful and extraordinary prepared sounds that are symbiotic with Koukias’ electronic score.

Piano: Gabriella Smart (AUS)
Music: Constantine Koukias (AUS/NETH)
Tape Sound Design: Mischa Duncan te Pas
Lighting Design: Jason James
