These are settings of a group of poems by the Tasmanian poet Sarah Day, used by kind permission of the poet and her original publisher, Penguin. They are meditations upon age-old debris washed up after numerous shipwrecks on a South-Tasmanian beach. Their dream-like quality is reflected in the music, and in the insertion of the 5 mantra-like spells. So far (January 2004) they are unperformed.
