A musical project led by local singers, musical directors and producers recorded a song last week at Rockinghorse Studios to raise awareness of the epidemic of domestic violence in Australia.

The song Another Woman Gone will be accompanied by a film clip that will be shot locally, say organisers, and will feature men and women from across Australia. It will be released next year at the V-day celebrations on February 14.
