Preview Three Points of Dislocation
The Piece Three Points of Dislocation is a direct result of the ‘Shelter Project’ collaboration I had with the product designer, Derek Attenburrow. In exploring a process of creative dialogue and a sharing of adopted languages, I composed three acousmatic sketches and gave them the working titles of Rain, Iron and Shelter/dislocation. These sketches differed from my usual acousmatic work, as they were clearly referential and containing distinct sonic landscapes. However, as sketches these works were always in transition, as I was interrogating them both structurally and sonically. The concert piece, Three Points of Dislocation, is these three sketches re-evaluated and restructured into a single work. As part of the compositional design, the individual three points of the work are represented by the qualities of texture, landscape and solidity. And of the sounds: these come from a myriad of sources, with many chosen because of their raw, more elemental qualities.
