Exploring the gradient between acoustic realism and synthetic reality, real landscapes and fantasy, and creating fantastic re-imaginings of these landscapes. There is also a process of creating scenes to play out these fantasies: extrapolating from the gestures of the landscape and its indigenous nature to create musical scenes of parallel and sympathetic resonance. Gesture responding to gesture, widening the circle until completion. Magical realism as a piece of the dreaming state, the vision state, projected onto the canvas of ordinary perceived reality.
Field recordings, keyboards, dulcimer, and Irish low whistle.
