Brown leather sofa


My work strays between notated music, electronic music, music for the concert hall, and music for the gallery. One unifying aspect of everything I do is that I aim for a quality of ‘boldness’—a kind of transparency of intention and sound. I hope that’s obvious in a piece such as Brown leather sofa, where the musical materials are never manipulated in a remotely convoluted fashion. Since writing that piece I’ve applied the same objective, almost sculptural, approach to working with voices, in recent pieces such as The indistinguishables (2014) for string quartet and recorded speaking voices, and Vapour descriptors (2014) for two singing pianists.
