Fort Process – panoramic scores #3

The Fort Process festival, a production by the Lost Property arts collective, commissioned me for a new panoramic score composition. I’ve been very much looking forward to starting working on it – it’s going to be much longer than last year’s IMAGIRO Landmannalaugar and wrapping through buildings of Fort Newhaven, starting today! I’ve got the 40Continue reading “Fort Process – panoramic scores #3”

Next Panoramic Score piece, Sept 22

I’m extremely thrilled to introduce to you my next gigantic Panoramic Score production. This time situated on an incredible on-location setting at the Fort Process Festival in Newhaven, UK. Photos below show the buildings and structures where I’m going to compose the panoramic scores for. The sheet music will wrap itself through the spaces. The echoingContinue reading “Next Panoramic Score piece, Sept 22”

British Music Collection online graphic score exhibition

IMAGIRO are giant graphic scores in a hand-painted ink and brush graphic notation I called ‘panoramic score’, which paces the sound through a wide landscape sized movement. Unfolding its multi-timbral music from a single gesture only like origami unfolds from a single sheet of paper. photo Jen Fearnley For the 50th anniversary of the BritishContinue reading “British Music Collection online graphic score exhibition”

Watch IMAGIRO LANDMANNALAUGAR here

I’m extremely proud to present this video to you – thank you Ensemble Synaesthesis for the spellbinding performance! Rugged wild landscapes with their hills and mountains read like music to me. The Icelandic use the work ‘fjallasyn’ to describe a distant view, especially in clear weather and from a point where you can see aContinue reading “Watch IMAGIRO LANDMANNALAUGAR here”

IMAGIRO #3 stages of development

‘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”

IMAGIRO #2 painting

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. . .

‘IMAGIRO’ #1 doing the maths

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 . .

DAR Lithuania commission

Rugged wild landscapes with their hills and mountains read like music to me. The Icelandic use the work ‘fjallasyn’ to describe a distant view, especially in clear weather and from a point where you can see a big part of a highland area – a panorama with many peaks.  Last year I spent quite someContinue reading “DAR Lithuania commission”
