Product details

Voices in the Sky takes its title from a fragment quoted from Varèse in Henry Miller's famous essay "With Edgar Varèse in the Gobi Desert" (from The Air-Conditioned Nightmare, 1945). Miller was a writer whose ideas on the relationship of art and life has greatly influenced me. In the composition I have drawn upon ideas from the essay, one of the few pieces of Miller's writing directly concerned with music, modern or otherwise. The creative key to the work is the concept of Miller's that "freedom
means the strict inner precision of a Swiss Watch combined with absolute recklessness". In this piece I have attempted to impose strict controls upon quite limited materials but at the same time have tried to create in places a kind of reckless flamboyance.
