The Orbweavers (songwriter, composer and visual artist Marita Dyson and songwriter, composer and producer Stuart Flanagan) have received national and international praise for their highly evocative works, most recently Deep Leads (out now on Mistletone Records). Many of their musical compositions and performances have been inspired by history, natural science, place and memory. They recently undertook a fellowship at State Library of Victoria researching Melbourne’s waterways, the changes industrialisation brought to the local creek and river environments, and the life of the people who lived and worked along the banks of the Birrarung and Maribyrnong rivers, the Merri, Moonee Ponds, Laverton and Stony creeks.
