Glen Downie: light speckled...Embedded video
See details ➔
light speckled droplet is an elaboration and further development of the composer's 2014 work, Kaleidoscopic Terrain, in which long streams of atmospheric orchestral colour were punctuated by growly barks from the brass.
“I think the title captures some aspects of my aesthetics which are evident in this piece, which is a certain delicacy and lightness, even when the textures are dense they tend to be quite transparent and light. I also like the idea of refraction and reflection that you get with droplets, subtle shifts and shimmers of colour, which relate to the way timbre and pitch shift/react throughout the orchestra and choir.” -- Glen Downie
