“tapes glimmer, strings vibrating” | THE SOUND WORLD

“Musical cues and clues occur throughout the score. The original melodic passages are all featured on p21 as a tune resource with light harmonies, a set of pitches without real rhythms and only a few arbitrary divisions…”

“Vaious allusions are made to notable music from The Emperor and The Ring to popular songs and Brian Eno. One specific musical tribute is to the ensemble AMM and its founder Cornelius Cardew…Thus Irma tries to acknowledge its influences and pay its debts to music’s history…”

“There are also references to concrete sounds, street noise, stones etc which should be integral to the piece…”
Tom Phillips
