Directed realtime composition.
The macro structures (format, staging, sound design, groupings and so on) were detailed in advance. The sonic content is informed by the relationships between the individual performers (largely with an extensive history) and their relationship, understanding and knowledge of the composer (also with an extensive history). The rehearsal period contributed significantly to the attitudes and approach adopted for the performance. The surround sound system and it's manipulation contributes significantly to the aural experience of the work. This recording does not reflect that detail.
Recipient of APRA/MJFF Composer Commission Award.
