Five composers explore our perception and interaction with surfaces and textures. Celeste Oram strategically deprives musicians of certain senses in ‘Mirror and Echo’, the music resulting from their reactions to gestures and delayed auditory signals. Dylan Lardelli’s ‘Musical Box’ and Simon Eastwood’s ‘Ripple’ explore sustained textures, while Alex Taylor superimposes two string quartets in ‘a coincidence of surfaces (iii)’, two layers that can also be played as independent works.
