. Happy about how #IMAGIRO ‘Largo’ and ‘Landmannalaugar’ worked out. If I get the chance will be writing more in this line.

‘IMAGIRO’ is a composition for ensemble and panoramic score, unfolding its music from a single landscape size movement into a sound sculpture like origami, whilst pacing the musicians through the concert space in a slow-motion ceremonial choreography of imaginary Olympian sprinters. For those interested, let me talk you through the many various stages of creating this work. I guessContinue reading “IMAGIRO #3 stages of development”
I have been looking forward to painting my graphic landscape #panoramicscore for months! This is the first sketch, still a bit blocky. #IMAGIRO will be premiered by Ensemble Synaesthesis in Vilnius, Lithuania, on August 14. Commissioned for the DAR Residency, in collaboration with AiR Krems and Sound And Music. . .
Full of beans finishing my new piece #IMAGIRO. A #panoramicscore! So excited and full of wonder how this is going work visually. Unfolding music and players through the concert space in a time-lapse rally. In theory it works really simple… #brainworkout #Vilnius #premiere14aug #ensembleSynaesthesis . .

I’m working on a Sound And Music ‘Embedded’ commission for the experimental Apartment House ensemble. The page turning sound of the player’s paper score makes part of piece.
