No Enemy Within is the latest musical project from drummer/percussionist Lachlan Hawkins, and sees him moving away from the drum kit chair to explore the beautiful sounds of the handpan in collaboration with renowned Brisbane producer Steve Thornely.
With plans to release a CD later this year, this live album captures Lachlan's recent handpan premiere concert at the Queensland Conservatorium as part of the 2016 Alumni Concert Series. The album invites listeners into Lachlan’s creative process, featuring both solo and small group original works for the handpan. All of the music is inspired by the concept of having ‘no enemy within’ - being at peace with yourself, quietening your mind and listening to the big-dreamer, creative voice inside - as well as messages inspired by family, gratitude and wellbeing. Lachlan was thrilled to be joined by fellow QCGU alumnus and close friends Tsoof Baras, Sophie Min & special guests Jordan Brodie, Caleb Colledge & Anna Kho for this performance in April 2016.
