When the Fine Music Presenters’ Committee decided to take up the idea of creating a Fine Music station sting (or theme), Dr Michael Field AM decided to have a go at writing it!

All that was needed was a couple of bars of attractive music to create an aural association with the station.

Michael’s theme is based on a simple sequence of four falling chords in a minor key, preceded by a short lead-in phrase (anacrusis), and ending with a final resolving chord in which the minor third interval is sharpened to make the transition from G minor to G major.

There are four variations of the sting available for download:

  1. Station sting for piano, performed by Emyr Evans
  2. Station sting for harp, performed by Georgia Lowe
  3. Station sting for plucked strings, performed by the Acacia Quartet
  4. Station sting for guitar, synthesised by Michael Field
