Echoes of Conflict – Vietnam A Musical Reflection

“echoes of conflict” is a musical reflection on the events surrounding
many young Australians during the tumultuous years of the Vietnam War.

The piece musically depicts a situation where young soldiers, many of whom were conscripted and full of apprehension and anxiety, faced an uncertain future; and how the forthcoming events created a dramatic change in their lives and personalities.
This metamorphosis culminated upon their return from active service in the rejection and hostility toward them by an emotionally divided society.

In many cases this led to the Vietnam veterans┬╣ decision to “walk away” from the whole controversial situation.
