Black Summer/Rising Waters is written for recorder orchestra. It was the 2nd place winner in the Orpheus Music Competition 2022. The prize was awarded by the Sydney Society of Recorder Players. 

Black Summer/Rising Waters is a response to the NSW bushfires of July 2019-March 2020, and the NSW floods of January to July 2022.

The opening of Black Summer portrays the first few flames, growing to an unstoppable conflagration at letter D. The section at letter F is the aftermath of the fire.

Rising Waters begins with rain falling, and the rain motive continues throughout the piece. The movement incorporates two fragments from the John Dowland song Go Crystal Tears.

Score; 20 pages. 8 parts @ 2-3 pages ea.
