Maree Clarke and cultural pride

2012; printed 2018 Maree Clarke

As a composer, I understand time as a series of sound movements, often with a feeling attached. When Maree came to my house to allow me to experience the Copi work, a ritual for mourning, my body responded the same as when I’m in the depths of musical improvisation. A dissolving of the ego, a feeling of total freedom, and a profound sense of connection. The power of art is in ritual, the power is in process.
