We are the Voices of the Wandering Wind

Adam Stanović

We are the Voices of the Wandering Wind has been performed in Aberdeen, Brussels, Corfu, Leicester, Linz and Sheffield…

… which moan for rest and rest can never find…

I was inspired to write this piece whilst on a composition residency in Ohio (USA); each day, the endless wind blowing across the plain found its way through a tiny gap in the studio window, producing a high whistling that I managed to record. A few months later, in Lisbon (Portugal), I heard the wandering wind again. This time it was soft and low, and as listened, half-awake half in sleep, it turned to song…


We are the Voices of the Wandering Wind was composed in 2018 at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Australia, with support from the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN). I am very grateful to the Conservatorium for hosting me, and to Damien Ricketson and Daniel Blinkhorn for making my visit possible. All materials were recorded on location in Ohio, Lisbon and Sydney, with additional sounds kindly donated by Adrian Moore and Dale Jonathan Perkins.
