‘Phantom Red’


Comissioned by violinist Andrew Liddell this piece is written for violin, viola, cello and double bass.

Inspired by Tenney’s Koan, this piece focuses on exploring glissandi as a way of moving between pitches. Bringing a more tonal context helps the listener in recognising the shifting notes. In the search for elaborated textures, I asked performers to play molto sul ponticello at times, as well as sul tasto. Harmonics effectively contrast long and rich sounding chords and add movement within the piece. 

Performed and recorded at Trinity Laban Studios.
