Between A Thought And An Action for vocal ensemble, to be performed by the Vocal Constructivists

My original graphic score 'Between a thought and an action', for vocal ensemble, has been selected as the winner of the Vocal Constructivists/SNCMF graphic score competition. The piece will be performed by the Vocal Constructivists at the Stoke Newington Contemporary Music Festival on 5-December 2015.

Program Note: I’ve always appreciated graphic notation for it’s ability to provide a medium for expression that is at once concrete and real, yet interpretive. Musical graphic notation is the most flexible tool with which to realise a subtly and interpretation of material that the visual arts takes for granted, operating in the same space that we find the linguistic techniques of metaphors, smilies and idioms. However, these realisations much necessarily take place in the world of sound, and as such the graphic is realised between the way we interpret a visual relationship and the way we embody that relationship in action.

'Between a thought and an action' will be programmed alongside works by Cornelius Cardew, BogusÅ‚aw Schäffer, Stephen Montague, and Wojciech Kosma, in a program of music focusing on contemporary Polish pieces alongside past composers, juxtaposing music from the 18th and 20th centuries.
