William Barton is a story teller. He is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading didgeridoo players and composers.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with William on a variety of major events. He is a true gentlemen and inspiring artist. Always happy to share his craft and knowledge. The events he performs at, are richer for his involvement.
He has performed around the globe, with the Philharmonic Orchestras of London to Anzac Cove and the Beijing Olympics. William has won Awards for his work – an ARIA, an APRA and others.
The quiet conviction for his Kalkadunga heritage is expressed in his musical portraits – and the culture and landscapes that it represents.
A personal favourite of mine is William’s contribution to the mesmerising documentary “River” – a cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers. A collaboration with the creative team behind “Mountain” – including Director Jennifer Peedom, Richard Tognetti and the Australia Chamber Orchestra, narrator Williem Dafoe and writer Robert Macfarlane.
