Turbulence : for chamber orchestra [eScore] / Lisa Cheney.

Version: This product features the Chamber orchestra version of this work

Work Overview

Turbulence explores the notion of 'forces at play' in our everyday lives. During the brainstorming process of this work I was fascinated by how such strong, natural, atmospheric, religious, physical and emotional forces all have the possibility to coexist, working both together and against each other. I wished to create a work that wasn't necessarily lyrical, rather, fast, crunchy and loud with a blurred tonality, bursts that generate up a whirl of sound, gaining and decreasing energy that continues to compound on itself reflecting the ways in which forces both coexist and clash with each other. As part of the composing process I took the opportunity to explore serial techniques as a means to extend my harmonic language, taking the work to a more ambiguous and at times, conflicting sound world.
