This work is a study experimenting with a number of parameters, such as polyphony, just intonation and process. The latter stems from what has been a long fascination in the visual counterpoint that we encounter every day, be it the interweaving cyclic structure when passing a gasometer, observing a hanging mobile or the movement of celestial bodies. Furthermore I’ve been keen to work with perception of distance and speed, such as when traveling how distant objects appear to be static and then accelerate as we pass these by. Part of the ongoing challenge has been how to interpret these ideas into music to which this work exhibits my attempt so far.

Item Type: Composition
