Waves of Anzac (Music from the Documentary) is represented by 13?tracks selected from?the?score for the ABC documentary on forgotten war stories and lives lost. The documentary is a personal history by the actor Sam Neill?(Jurassic Park, The Piano) set against a contemporary increasingly divided political backdrop.?‘Why Anzac? with Sam Neill’?(Dir. Kriv Stenders, 2015)?is named for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served together in the Gallipoli Campaign, their first engagement in World?War I and continued as a military unit until after WW2. The film is a look at this pivotal point in our shared history, and the impact it still has on a?personal and on a geopolitical level. Harvey recently examined this period via the prism of a fictional soldier/poet for his collaboration with Christopher?Richard Barker,?The Fall and Rise of Edgar Bourchier and the Horrors of War.
The Journey?is a four-part composition, recorded with The Letter String Quartet,?in support of people seeking asylum who have found themselves in?Australia’s offshore detention program. The piece was composed as a study of the hardships endured by the detainees on Nauru, Manus Island and?Christmas Island before and during their internment and as an expression of hope for a humane outcome to their plight.
Mick Harvey is a founding member of The Birthday Party, Crime and the City Solution and The Bad Seeds and has collaborated extensively with PJ?Harvey, Rowland S Howard and Anita Lane. His solo releases began in 1995 with the first in a series of Serge Gainsbourg interpretations and?translations which he recently revived with two acclaimed releases in 2016 and 2017. Harvey has been scoring film and television since 1988’s?‘Ghosts… of the Civil Dead’?(Dir. John Hillcoat) and a collection of his soundtrack work – featuring music from?‘Chopper’?(Dir. Andrew Dominik, 2000),?the award-winning soundtracks for?‘Australian Rules’?(Dir. Paul Goldman, 2002) and?‘Suburban Mayhem’?(Dir. Paul Goldman, 2006) and more – was?released by Mute in 2006.
