Vanessa Tomlinson
Sonic Dreams [2017] for bass clarinet, electric guitar and harp.

Sonic Dreams [2017] is an imagination of lost and unknown sounds. Performers improvise their way through eight imaginary soundscapes – the turtle coming up for breath; the spines of the giant echidna rubbing against a tree; the stick-nest rat moving about in its nest for example.
This piece is composed for and dedicated to GreyWing Ensemble, a group of sonic investigators that live in Perth, Australia. All the sound worlds imagined in this work once belonged to this area of the world, and are now either extinct or critically endangered. In the case of the turtle Pseudemydua umbrina, its habit is now the Perth airport where it remains in a critically endangered state, its sound world totally transformed.

With a long history in experimental music, Vanessa uses this body of knowledge to consider how we listen through site-specific explorations of space and place, and through investigating our potential to explore new ideas through sound. Trained as a percussionist, Vanessa relies on this sonic investigation of objects to build compositions, create contexts for improvisation, and collaborate across art-forms and disciplines. She has toured the world for 25 years, premiering over 100 works by significant national and international composers, presenting work at major international festivals, and collaborating with improvisers, dancers, artists and more.
