Welcome to The Weight of Light education kit. The version you’re reading is our first attempt at creating an engaging resource to inspire high school students to create creative written texts and musical compositions based on our work in this new Australian song cycle. It contains analysis of two songs, as well as lots of information about how we created the story and collaborated to make the music. You’ll hear from both the composer and the librettist, and find out what makes this new Australian work so special.
Notice: the work deals with issues of depression, suicide, and PTSD-like experiences. It does this in an entirely artistic way, but teachers should consider this in implementation within their curriculum.
