Received some really nice news this afternoon, the CD I recorded with Sheish Money, The Stillest Hour has been shortlisted for the Aural Text Award.
While I don’t know the complete shortlist, I do know that the QLD Poetry Festival CD – A Million Bright Things is shortlisted, so I know the competition is strong.
The winner is announced on closing night of Overload Poetry Festival this Sunday, September 19. Will keep you posted!
It’s been 2-years in the making, but at last our debut CD, The Stillest Hour will finally be launched by Hinemoana Baker as part of her farewell to these fine shores.
Here’s all the details:
QWC and 2009 Arts Queensland Poet-in-Residence Hinemoana Baker invite you to the launch of gondwanavista & The Stillest Hour.
Celebrate the closing of an amazing residency program and poroporoaki Hinemoana by launching her beautiful sonic poem into the world! Experience the debut of gondwanavista, created from fragments of the work Hinemoana has composed whilst on residency and embedded in field recordings from her outback adventures.
Hinemoana will also launch the debut spoken word CD from local poetry duo Graham Nunn & Sheish Money, The Stillest Hour. Bookings essential as space is limited.

We sure hope to see a bunch of you at this launch to help us celebrate and send Hinemoana off in style. There are only 100 copies of The Stillest Hour, so it won’t be around for very long. Make sure you get yours…
