Residency report: Phillippa Murphy-Haste and Patrik Jarlestam
We had a wonderful time at Gunyah, waking up every morning to look out over the landscape and spy pelicans and dolphins in the water.
It was the perfect place for a creative retreat and gave us space and time to think carefully about our craft.
We used our time in North Arm Cove to experiment with musical ideas and devise new processes of working together.
Patrik started learning new programming skills in order to see how we could interact with clarinet and video projections. He also took many photos of the natural landscape and surrounding area for incorporation into his projections.
We collaborated on new compositions and invited some friends to play with us who also brought their own music which we played together.
Gunyah is a unique place for artists to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and focus on creativity within a calm and serene environment.
We absolutely loved our stay. Thank you so much to Kath and all the owners of Gunyah for having us.
