Lissa Meridan: tuning the head of a pin - hardcopy SCORE

Hardcopy typeset

Full score



To borrow items or hire parts please email SOUNZ directly at


Thanks to funding from CNZ we were able to ask this dynamic young composer to write a new piece for us. Her approach to the orchestra is unique as she explores and manipulates exotic textures of sound. Her scoring is very like the way a painter will use colour, brush strokes and canvas to create a vibrant and stimulating work. Silence emerges out of noise: melodic and rhythmic fragments undo themselves from a tangle of harmonic chaos and dance their way towards unity, before finally submerging into a meditative silence, a breath. 8 triangles of various sizes are to be placed within the flute, oboes, and horns. See score for further details.
