Description
"Mpountain Torrent" was exhibited with 6 other sculptures in 1978 through the Australia Music Centre in Sydney with the help of composer Peggy Glanville-Hicks and music expert and author James Murdoch. Each sculpture had a short composition written for it, each by a different composer. “Mountain Torrent” was exhibited with a composition (Music for the Turning of a Sculpture by Pamela Boden) by American composer Lou Harrison (1917 - 2003), who composed it for a Gamelan - a traditional Javanese ensemble which uses a variety of instruments.
