Good people of the multiverse, I’m very, very pleased to present to you my first release in some time – ‘A Hidden Order’, a collaboration with geometer Sama Mara. The project, in essence, is a study on the relationship between music and geometry. Through the use of a new system devised by Sama whereby music is translated into visuals through a set of rigorous geometric principles, we have been exploring the space where these two worlds meet harmoniously. The album ‘A Hidden Order’ features a new suite of 10 pieces for a mixed ensemble of flute (Philippe Barnes), cor anglais (Suzie Shrubb), marimba/percussion (Adam Bushell) and cello (Susie Winkworth). The music was composed alongside the imagery, one feeding into the other. This release is available on CD (a very limited edition press of 150 copies in 4-page digipack with 16-page booklet featuring documentation of the compositional process alongside details of the accompanying artwork), and as digital download, HERE.
The exhibition ‘A Hidden Order’ will take place at the Prince’s School Of Traditional Arts, Charlotte Road, Shoreditch, between 20th-29th March. Live performances (a multimedia concert of live music and realtime visualisation) will take place in the exhibition space on 20th & 27th March, 7pm, £8/5. Tickets are available HERE.
