The title comes from the life-force that is central to His Dark Materials, Philip Pullman's trilogy of Miltonesque multi-verses, quantum physics, humanism, and failed angels.
Dust is one of a number of attempts to
overcome the tyranny of the barline.
The ideal acoustic is that of a church or resonant hall where the notes linger and blend together. Silence is cherished.
A companion piece to Dust is Saltare Solis for eight harps.
Dust can be performed by as many harps as are available.
Each performer plays in their own time, however a common underlying slow pulse should be shared.
Instrumentation: Multiple harps.
Commission note: Commissioned by Sydney Chamber Choir.
Duration is indeterminate.
