other islands

other islands, for piano, violin, sax and laptop, was written for ensemble Intégrales for a concert at the Hamburg Operastabile in December 2009. It was recorded and broadcast by Deutschlandfunk for the programme Konzertdokument der Woche, January 2010.

The work grew from a STEIM residency with Intégrales violinist Barbara Lüneburg, which focused on honing a style of playing suited to my live sound processing using a core of notated materials traversable in different ways. It extends this to the ensemble situation, allocating different notational cores to each player at different times, demanding different modes of reading and relating to the instrument. The players were Burkhard Friedrich (sax), Ninon Gloger (piano), and Barbara Lüneburg (violin).

The piece is released on Never Come Ashore.
