Sights and Settings combines some traditional and some not so tradtional live sounds on the 'cello with some more familar electronic instrumental writing. These elements together produce a piece which has at times a popular music flavour to it. The work is in several sections which are;
City 1 - Surging energies in fast irregular rhythms and climaxes
Song of Unknown Places - Subdued and morbid yet quite melodious is a sinister and devious way
City 2 - Familiar and yet strangely unknow
Towers - Strong and glittering like individuals in a crowded stadium
Wanderings - Melodic and meandering, music to become lost in.
Instrumentation: Cello, tape.
Contents note: City 1 -- Song of unknown places -- City 2 -- Towers -- Wanderings.
Dedication note: To Elaine and Graham
