Time alone : for solo vibraphone and electronics / Damien Ricketson.

Library shelf no. 786.843/RIC 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Time Alone is a vibraphone solo from The Secret Noise: a collection of works inspired by music-making that has been deliberately shielded from public life. Other works in the series explore a variety of secret and private music-making ranging from forbidden ceremonial music to 'legally extinguished' compositions to music cliques and 'backmasking'. Time Alone was originally conceived in response to the proposition that music is increasingly becoming a private rather than social activity. The theme of isolation is reflected in a sparse work where solitary vibraphone notes barely connect to one another and the performer hums to themselves as if in their own world. Another layer of fragmentation occurs via the gradual intrusion of an electronic part that further disintegrates the natural resonance of the instrument.
