The garden, of course, is not a neutral environment. Its soundscape is in a constant flux of change appropriate to the time of year. Certainly, the sounds will be different in May and over the summer (when what I create will be exhibited). This, of course, presents its own challenges as I experiment with what the final result might sound like.

Any composition can be seen as a dialogue between foreground and background. In this case, that dialogue will be between whatever it is that I compose and the setting of the garden’s summer soundscape. I am interested in making that dialogue a feature of the piece and to this end I have been experimenting with sound recordings from the garden using it as both a sound source and as an instrument.
