With The Inside Where The Outside Should Be (2014)
This solo vibraphone work, created for Erica Rasmussen in April 2014, is made up of nine musical cells across three tonal centres. The cells comprise specific chords, rhythms and bowed notes on the vibes, and may be played in any order and any number of times by the performer.
With the Inside Where the Outside Should Be is a guided improvisation, and should be treated as a puzzle with an indeterminate or infinite number of realisations.
The electronic accompaniment is made up of all kinds of cymbal and bell sounds, digitally altered - pitch shifted, delayed, and/or reversed. The title of the work refers to the reverse cymbal sounds in the accompaniment.
