About

Imagine the harmonics associated with each musical sound as its "aura". This piece brings these auras into fuller consciousness: at the start the orchestra's staccato chord is immediately decorated by the solo piano's flourish on its harmonic series. These auras permeate the work. The piece is in a single movement – its various sections related rhythmically. It was first performed by Barbara King and the Victoria University Orchestra under Peter Walls in August 1995.
