Programme Note - This work is a response to an extract from Francis Bacon’s celebrated utopian novel of the same name published in 1623 where he describes the Bensalem ‘sound houses’, which bares a startling resemblance to how we produce, realise and listen to music today. The work incorporates a sonic landscape with samples ranging from gibbon calls to bull frogs captured by the composer at London Zoo and The Devil’s Hopyard State Park, Connecticut.

This work was commissioned by the Handel House Museum and produced with thanks to ZSL London Zoo and iPark Artists Enclave, Connecticut and premiered at the Handel House Museum by Jane Chapman, April 2013
