Work Overview

'FLAW' is composition for organ, large ensemble and multi-channel surround sound. The work, which was presented alongside two other new commissions from Austin Buckett and Alvin Lucier, utilises a unique ensemble of strings, trumpet, percussion, reel-to-reel tape machine, turntable, electronics, soprano and pipe organ to create an immersive sound world that uses development and spatialisation to explore the perception of time.

"This is sensuous, immersive ambient music and a stunning example of how a good composer can distil the bombast and drama of the pipe organ into a thing of simple grace and beauty." - The Guardian

"Uncompromising assertiveness" - The Sydney Morning Herald
