Sheet Music: Score
The surge, the sounds, the pull : for orchestra / Anthony Lyons.
by Anthony Lyons (2007)
The Surge, The Sounds, The Pull takes its title and broad inspiration from a painting by the Australian artist John Firth-Smith. Much of Firth-Smith's work is abstract in nature and tends to suggest worlds of swirling water, wind, sail boats, rope, rusty iron and primordial forces bound up in shapes, textures, rhythms and figures like spirals. The painting suggested a number of sonic impressions and concepts related to 'surge' and 'pull'. These implant themselves upon the structure and feel of the piece through dynamic and textural contrast, and in some sections the use of close delay or ripple-like imitation techniques between instrumental parts.
