Description: This piece was created on the composers' Desktop Project Computer Work station, over the space of about 10 weeks, and lasts just over 11 minutes. This piece draws on six basic sound sources. Five of these are purely synthetic, whilst the last is the recorder sound of a breaking twig. All but one of the synthetic materials was f-generated by a method of granular synthesis via fractal organisation, using software, which I developed in the summer of 1989. The hope is that this technique gields sound whose inner vitality approaches the illusive richness of the natural sound world. Synthetic and natural sound sources are also subject to spatial processing, using software which I wrote whilst the work was under way. This piece was first performed in December 1989 at Keele University.
