Prepared Oboe, Prepared Alto Saxophone, Percussion (x2), Piano and Prepared Double Bass (8 minutes): Cartography of Convoluted Spaces


Abstract / About the project


"My compositional cycle Spatio–Temporal Cartographies is the result of a collaboration with photographer Cathy Pyle. The works of this cycle are inspired by photographs taken at a house clearance and antiques centre in Surrey (UK). The works of this cycle are scored using prepared instruments, but the compositional focus is in exploring non-linear formal approaches. Each work consists of sections that can be performed in any order, but always as single movements."

Cartography of Convoluted Spaces was scored for ensemble: saxophone, oboe, percussion (x2), piano and double bass. The piece is commissioned by New Dots, Premiered by Workers Union Ensemble, London.
