This piece is a musical foundry. My focus is on metal: sawn, hammered, melted, poured, moulded, cast, polished... The melodic material is based on pitch analyses of the sounds of drilling, hammering and sawing. I want to melt the material down to a metallic gleam. Foundry was commissioned by Continuum with funds from the Laidlaw Foundation.
