Circular Ruins

Numerous strategies are used to explore the spatial relationship between different musical materials. Spaces are superimposed, juxtaposed or convoluted in order to create a multidimensional sound structure. There is a clear structural dualism between seemingly real and imaginary spaces. The music restlessly moves from one state to the other in the hope of finding something new: perhaps a state in which the boundaries of reality and fiction are transcended. The title is taken from a short story by Jorge Luis Borges.

The composition of this piece started during my residency at IMEB, Bourges (2005). The piece was later completed at City University, London. All the sound material was recorded at the City University Studio.
