Irkanda I is a completely Australian work; the undisturbed, primeval land is like a silent presence summoned by the music, which is free of all sophisticated influences. The composer has shut himself off from tonality and there is a wordless searching as if language had not yet been invented; the music portrait of a non-human environment.
