The 12 Stages Of Freedom Music and Lyrics – Stu Hunter In moments Uncertainty flows throughout the garden Truth in a perfect lie cracks the dawn Shaking the faithful canon Unspoken This garden is no Eden leave by the pearly gate Drops in the ocean Wash away the sin An Odyssey begins of questions not answers circling misty doors of promise Answers of black and white tempt the heart memories of promised Zion Unspoken An alien in the nation Guilt a shadow Observed, never private No peace in the home all eyes watching Never all alone Feeling separate No way to return Cut ties hanging Still moored to the child alone in the distance Go now, find the child, alone in the distance Go now, find the child, small child, bring him home. Don’t climb the 12 steps to freedom, they are desire Only way back, is down Walk Chase the dream Miss the boat let it float away There are pathways to unearth in the water Don’t delay The moment, the master Steps measured in lifetimes Walk Breathe the night and time can unpick the stitches Hold the line In clouds, the eyes are blind Truth is the entropy Hidden behind the flags of belief are frozen hearts Here my child, I’ll hold you Time brought me to you I was there, I know I’ll be your guide joy is your fortune Watch the cloud dissolve and taste your freedom My love, I feel you Gone is the darkness Kiss my eyes and sleep Our dreams are young Vast as the universe The only limit now is imagination

Requiem for Belief Music and Lyrics – Stu Hunter Here in the notion The streetlights, the shimmer Are questions, answers and rhymes Under the surface Distilled in the scratches Are rippling echoes of time The madman has a vision, A people, who bury the flags Round the tables, an infinite feast Smoke from the Pyre The leaders are singing A requiem for belief

MDu Moonshine Music and Lyrics – Stu Hunter birds fly beneath the sea in my mind time walks backwards and the rivers climb there’s a feeling that tastes like wine you’re never gonna buy it this is moonshine I watch em come and I watch em go swimmin up stream against the flow they get so tired they come to blows what’s the remedy I don’t know gotta be an answer people say and they look to the sky for a highway but the show I watch you can’t pre-pay It’s all about the interplay birds fly beneath the sea in my mind time walks backwards and the rivers climb there’s a feeling that tastes like wine you’re never gonna buy it this is moonshine bounce a kiss off the moon hope my dreams will take me soon lying in the night in the mdu moonshine I hope you got my song I sent it with the dawn I found it in the night in the mdu moonshine

about

4 1⁄2 Stars
achieves an almost symphonic form in its structure - The Australian

sinuous melody, exotic textures and wickedly funky sensibilities - The Sydney Morning Herald

a breath-taking musical roller-coaster of hard grooves and multiple sound textures, challenging the notion of jazz and contemporary improvisation – AustralianJazz.Net

The third in a series of critically acclaimed suites by composer/pianist Stu Hunter. Beginning with the muse (2007) and followed by the gathering (2010) - the migration lifts the roof off in it’s scope and intensity. Driving grooves and lush sonic landscapes form powerful scaffolds on which to drape rich harmonic complexity and deep emotive melodies.

The world is a seething melting pot like at no time before in it’s history. Ideas and cultural expressions race around the globe in an instant via the Internet. the migration is a response to modern life, love, family, cultural complexity and the blurring of cultural identity within the global diaspora. – performed by a world class ensemble featuring ten of Australia’s finest musicians.
