This work was recorded in the mid 1970s and used on the sound track of a film for the then Department of Lands and Survey/Conservation about the Tasman Glacier. The film was made by Tony Lilleby, a Park Board ranger at Mt Cook in the mid 1970s and was used at various National Park Headquarters as part of audio-visual presentations for visitors. ‘Tasman Ice’ has been performed over the years by various flutists including Uwe Grodd, Alexa Still, Nicola Harris and students at Auckland University. I also performed it at a concert in Japan. As it was published in ‘Little Dancings’ it has had more performances than I know about which is great.
