Programme Note

circuit:spiral is one possible commentary on the nature of recurrence, both real and imagined. Materials are reused at fairly short intervals in a spiral or coil framework, sometimes quoted exactly, often altered drastically and always recontextualised to achieve a sense of continual development. The composer is interested in first reactions to pieces of new music: does the mind recall sonic events and conjure meaningful relationships between them, or, in the absense of repeated hearings, is the new musical experience heard simply as fantasia? circuit:spiral was a finalist in the 2006 Douglas Lilburn Prize, in which it was awarded the Panel Prize.
