The Painted Piano Project
The children of Menindee Central School near Broken Hill, NSW were part of a project initiated by Kevin Hunt to paint scenes on the shell of a piano cabinet to launch Hunt's composition Byalla.
"So much is achieved in understanding culture by listening, and music plays a vital role in this communication," says Hunt, whose PhD focuses on the connection between ancient Indigenous music and contemporary Australian life. Kevin's PhD was completed in 2016.
