Into the Sun was written for viola player, Dawn Bennett, who made many wise suggestions which have been incorporated into the piece. The music draws together several influences – progressive rock's driving and changing metres, a song from my work Phoebus Fire, Brahms's Sonatensatz, the initials of the violist and the composer – into a multi-section work.
Into the Sun was the trigger for a project of new works for viola and piano, Australia East and West, funded through an APRA grant in 2011–2012, which Dawn and I performed in Sydney and Perth.
