Australian Rock and Pop Music
Due to its origins in the cities, Australian Rock and Pop isnt as distinctly "Australian" as country or classical music. However, people like Iva Davies and bands like Midnight Oil have sung songs that show Australia's beauty, and in the case of the Oils, the problems facing us politically and socially ie. rebellion.
Nature is also an inspiring core for Australian classical music. Peter Sculthorpe is Australia's best known composer overseas precisely because he writes music that attempts to capture the uniqueness of Australian nature, as well as use the rhythms present in the indigenous music of Australia and Indonesia. This is present in "Kakadu", "Port Essington", "Sun Music" and the majority of his music. This influence has spread through the work of many composers.
