As I continue to assimilate my experiences from Japan, I am intrigued by the impulse to use certain media to express myself. I am always excited by the moment when music comes to the fore and it is liberating to explore the multiple textures of sound.
High Rise Ceremony is a selection of largely improvised sketches inspired by places, people and my return to the West. In it I explore themes of discovery, personal transformation and societal dysfunction and briefly refer to literature in Hara (from Van Der Post's The Seed and the Sower).
High Rise Ceremony was composed in November and December 2017.
