Programme note

Much of the writing was completed as part of an Aldeburgh Composer Residency.

ach section of the piece follows on without a break from the previous one. The whole piece should be played with unflagging energy, always rhythmically but also giving proper length to each note, ensuring that it speaks harmonically against the other parts. It is essential that the piece be performed at the exact tempo prescribed.

Premiere
Ensemble Scratch, The Surface at King's Place, London, 10th May 2010
