About

The title Anxome is a contraction of the word "manxome", from the phrase in Lewis Carroll's The Jabberwocky: "long time his manxome foe he sought". The piece is descriptive of a state of mind: at times anxious and shy, but also playful and cheeky. It was premiered in The Committee's 'Lightshift' concert. Andrew Uren performed it from a high balcony, behind the audience, who were in the dark.
