The Reef was a co-production by the ACO and TURA New Music.

In May 2012, Richard Tognetti took musicians and surfers to the rugged surf coast and tough desert landscape of northern Western Australia to create a new performance piece at the intersection of music and nature.

Travelling with Tognetti to world heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef, making music and surfing with the locals, was a remarkable collection of artists: photographer Jon Frank, director Mick Sowry, composer Iain Grandage, didgeridoo player Mark Atkins, singer Stephen Pigram and musicians from the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

Together they have created The Reef, a performance using music and film to delve into the links between surfing, the ocean, landscape and music. 

This DVD was filmed at the live performance at the Sydney Opera House.
