WILLIAM CRIGHTON ANNOUNCES EAST COAST TOUR & 7-INCH VINYL RELEASE
Australia is a sporting nation, which means, in order to be a properly accredited member of society, with human rights and so on, you've got to either play sport or watch sport.
Sporting Nation, a three part series exploring Australia's relationship with sport, screened on ABC1 in June this year to unanimous acclaim.
Written and presented by John Clarke, this significant series explores the place of sport in Australian society, and has been celebrated for its intelligence, insights and humour.
“…a fascinating and hugely entertaining piece of social history”
Sunday Herald Sun
“Sporting Nation isn’t just about sport. It’s about self-knowledge”
Sydney Morning Herald
“…a genuinely thoughtful and complex look at our relationship with sport”
“…a beautiful piece of work”
Sydney Morning Herald
Now the amazing music from the TV series is available as a digital download to own. The music was written by Melbourne composer Julian Langdon.
“Julian's music was a very significant part of this series; not just in articulating sections of the story but in unifying the themes and in establishing a distinctive house-style.
A podium finish for the plucky Australian” – John Clarke
“Julian’s distinctive and timeless score highlights the paradoxes, insights and humour in the series and, like sport itself, can be simple on the surface and rich and complex underneath.” - Andrea Denholm, Producer
The 21 track album is available digitally right now to purchase.
“The music for Sporting Nation aims to support the depth, intelligence, emotion and wit of the series by playing to the cultural and political undertones as much as to the moments of obvious heroism, triumph and joy. Themes and motifs are developed to create a score that is cohesive but stylistically diverse to reflect the tonal range of the show.” - Julian Langdon, Composer
“…a witty score…cleverly juxtaposes nostalgia with a touch of satire.”
Sporting Nation Original Soundtrack – Music by Julian Langdon is out now digitally through ABC Music.
