Product details

"Five Phase Sphere by composer Luke Styles, which began busy and spitting before consolidating in a Shostakovich-like stateliness." **** The Guardian

"Luke Styles's Five Phase Sphere was stubbornly abstract" **** The Times

Five Phase Sphere presents 5 phases of music for this specific combination of instruments. The resonance of these 3 instruments together, their low frequencies and their combined musical potentials are all stimuli for each phase. Across each phase are musical links, but together, as five points of music they form a sphere of material, in my imagination.

In 2005 I heard a low trio for viola, cello and double bass by the composer Wolfgang Rihm and I was deeply drawn to this familiar but different, slightly deeper and somewhat more mysterious sound world. Since then 16 years has passed, but the desire to sound has never left me and I have always had the idea to write my own "low trio" in the back of my mind.
