This ten-minute sextet was composed for Flederman ensemble and premiered at the Sydney Opera House in May 1985. Subsequently a version with bass clarinet replacing tenor trombone was written for Terra Australia ensemble's tour of the United States in 1988. The word Spherics refers to the small sounds - cracks, whistles, whispres, tiny whoops - that are audible in space, as shown by recordings made by Alvin Lucier using low frequncy antennae.
Instrumentation: Flute/piccolo, tenor trombone, cello, percussion (1 player), piano, organ (chamber or electric). Alternate version with bass clarinet replacing tenor trombone is available.
Duration: 10 min.
First performance: by Flederman — 19 May 85. Studio 229 (Boardwalk), Sydney Opera House
