This piece is inspired by a sketch Iannis Xenakis made for his piece Terretektorh (1956-66). Whilst there are many sketches for this famous piece, one is a combination of clouds of gentle lines, as well as hard symmetrical ones, grouped out on graph paper. This piece features many of the elements that are part of my ongoing interest in glissandi, drone, noise and an exploration of the concepts around the low frequency range of music.
Instrumentation: Piano, bass clarinet, viola, cello, timpani.
Duration: 7 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Soundstream Collective
Commission note: Commissioned by Soundstream Collective.
