Product details

This work was commissioned by Graeme Lee for his wife Margaret. It was written with deepest gratitude for them from December 2015 until January 2016. Trams run outside their home in central Melbourne where I lived for a while. The noise of the wheels formed terrifying harmonics and chaotic rhythms. The harmonic series and its inversion (stated at the beginning) form the basis of the work - all pitch and durational material is freely derived from this sequence. The sonata explores the concept of aporia, which is a state of bewilderment, of not being sure of the way forward. This is expressed by the interplay between intuitive and systematized writing.
