Curved Form (No. 4)
Inspired by the visually-charged artwork of Bridget Riley with its bold repetitions of simple forms, my Curved Form series takes as its starting point a singular set of musical DNA. Each work grows in a different direction but they all share these common ancestors. In Curved Form (No. 4), my aim was to create a blissed-out drone piece made with hammers. The pulsating chords gradually morphing into one another, receding into the background and allowing the ever-shifting resonance of the piano to take over.
