I'm lucky enough to live in the Wet Tropics of Far North Queensland, Australia. This area boasts a truly rich and unique biodiversity, a wildlife enthusiast’s paradise and the only place in the world where two World Heritage Listed areas exist side by side (Wet Tropics and Great Barrier Reef).
Frequently people say ‘what is your favourite place in the world?’ and I start off saying home. But if I’m not home, I usually say, on many occasions, actually North Queensland. It’s got mountains, it’s got tropical rainforest, it’s got the Barrier Reef. It’s got wonderful creatures that occur nowhere else. It’s a great place. — David Attenborough
I was asked to write and produce some music tracks for commercial use, and the inspiration of these tracks had to come from impressions left by the rainforest and the reef. It's an inherently magical environment. And this led me to the production of these tracks which have a distinctly New Age feel to them.
The initial brief was for six tracks but this has been extended to ten.
Once all ten tracks are complete I think I might create some more music like this, and make them all part of the upcoming Tranquilio Project.
