Programme notes

Vanishing Points

Vanishing Points emanates from a single acoustic sound source, a brush of drapery. The piece explores rhythmic and spatial inter-relationships and articulations, and is a focused study of how far I could go in extracting quite distant sonic elements (timbral and evocative) from audible and inaudible structural features of the starting sound.
