This issue presents writing by musicians and writers who cross mediums to collaborate and experiment in the spaces between words and music, including Hilary Bell and Phillip Johnston. It includes curator John Murphy’s reflections on archiving Peter Sculthorpe’s house and Joseph Tolz writes of the experience of researching musical recollections from the Holocaust, and presents some of these memories from survivors. Michael Hooper compares Elliott Gyger’s operatic adaptation of David Malouf’s Fly Away Peter and Hannah Fink interviews Marie Bashir on her love of music. There is also the usual cornucopia of stories, poems and reviews.
