‘Full of subtle surprises, this is creative music with maturity and sophistication well beyond the years of its creators.’ Andrea Keller

Mooncalf is a 45-minute work by Marty Hicks (piano) and Georgie Darvidis (voice). A treatise on the beauty of imperfection, impermanence and fragility, the work draws on a multitude of influences spanning literature, film and history.

Reveling in the moments in music that would normally be discreetly shifted aside – such as audible breaths, extraneous noises, cracks in the voice, and the rustling of material and machine inside the piano – Mooncalf heralds these as sounds sharing the same value and beauty as the notes that are a product of them, celebrating the inescapable humanity, and inherent imperfection, in making music.
