Lace Frequencies was written after Ross Gillett's poem Death of a Dragonfly. It is drawn from a suite of works that respond to recent Australian poetry. In Gillett's poem, I was particularly drawn to the image of the dragonfly acting as a receiver for the 'smallest songs' - amplifying signals through the unlucky fate of being snagged on a car's aerial. Musically, Lace Frequencies superimposes melodic and textural flute material against degraded electronic timbres drawn from static interference signals. These signals include the sounds of analogue radios and electrical lightening discharges called sferics.
Instrumentation: Flute, electronics (can be performed live by a 2nd player or played as a sound file).
Duration: 9 min.
