Developed over two years by First Nations arts company Garrijimanha, the new work is performed by Mark Atkins on didgeridoo and James Morrison on bugle with production by Ricky Bloomfield. The Last Post (Winds of Change)' represents the unity that existed between First Nation and Australian Diggers on the battlefield, and is a healing acknowledgment to inspire a spirit of unity within communities.
The accompanying film, recorded at dawn on the sails of the Sydney Opera House, highlights the important role art plays in reflecting and celebrating history and creating new traditions and symbols which enable us to understand our past better.
