Microclimate I: Snow and Instability

For percussion, double bass, alto flute and acousmatic sound

'Snow and Instability' is the first in a series of works entitled 'microclimates'. Each work is structurally balanced, not in a symmetrical sense, but through the 'life' of one articulation resulting in a subsequent and counterbalancing reaction. This structuring method occurs in the underlying macro-organisation, while the acoustic instruments articulate the surface micro-structure.

This work attempts to concentrated the beauty and violence of a natural landscape into the 'microclimate' of the work - forming an organisational space that reflects, in acoustic form, the natural world and source inspiration.
