balancing act


This project is demanding a number of interesting questions relating to composition and sense of place, such as ‘what sounds are appropriate for a piece to exist outside?’, ‘how does one compose for an environment that is in a constant flux of change?’ and ‘how can a piece link to a specific space (in this case the garden)?’

Inspired by thoughts related to these questions, I am currently thinking about creating my composition in the form of a number of sections that frame the garden’s natural soundscape. One possibility is that each composed section could ‘dissolve’ in and out of the natural sounds, imperceptively beginning and ending, and thus blurring the distinction between listening to the piece itself or listening to the garden.
