I never underestimate the power of the spoken word in performance; however, one of the other great thrills for me as a writer is collaborating with musicians as they interpret my words. Ten years ago, Omid Master and I first collaborated on a song. I write the lyrics and he puts them to music; a process which is a mystery to me.
It was a pleasure to work with Omid recently in the Mapping the Heart production. Anywhere On This Earth was the finale piece, performed by Omid and the cast in an ‘unplugged’ version. The video below is definitely ‘plugged’; featuring Omid and his band on tour in Sydney.
