Andrew Anderson - Composer

Fluorescence describes a process in which something absorbs light of one colour, and subsequently re-emits light of a different colour. Something new is created, but directly because of that which goes in, and the thing it goes into. It strikes me that this is an analogy for the composition process: a composer encounters existing music and ideas, and – because of the specific nature of who they are – something different emerges in their created music: not quite the same as the original influences, but only existing because of those original influences.

Curiously, I suspect this means that a composer can have a very different view on what he or she thinks their music “sounds” like. An audience can only judge this on the finished work. But the composer - being in the unique position of observing the internal processes by which things are musically “fluoresced” – may often feel their music is more derivative of something rather different.

The past decade has seen a substantial flowering – a florescence – of my compositional output.

Indeed, most of my chamber works have been written in the past decade. It seems an appropriate time to look back and see if I can discern the influences that might have originally struck me, or shaped the direction of some of these works, so many of which are represented on this concert programme. To use the analogy: what was the source and colour of the original light?
