HARMONY IN AUSTRALIS

AUDIENCE INSTRUCTIONS:

Harmony in Australis’ invited performers to anagrammatically and harmonically rearrange a given text and musical motif to reveal alternate meaning and connections, playing with the absurdity of existing ideas, as well as exploring identity, hidden voices, and social values.

As an audience member, I invite you to cut out and reconstruct the text included in your box as you listen; what new ideas reveal themselves? Within limited constraints there is the power to step outside your existing perspective and observe a multitude of new meanings. I encourage you to close your eyes and listen closely to all the different voices in this work, and with each listening hear alternative texts and phrases emerge.

LYRICS

VERSE 1

Rolling hills,
And peaceful skies,
One half of the world in dark,
The other half in light.
There’s been some talk,
That we’re setting ourselves on fire
Seems like bullshit to me,
How could gas bring down an empire?


PRECHORUS 
And if it all comes crashing down,
Like we said it would,
I wanted you to know,
We didn’t do all we could.

 

CHORUS 
I hope that the blue skies,
were worth the grey.
Hope that the world ending,
Didn’t ruin your day.
Seemed crazy and nonchalant, 
But it’s just the way it was. 
I’m sorry that your world fell apart.
