‘Temporal’ is an album of contrasts and contradictions.
‘Exigence’ was written for Jack Adams (Mumdance) for a 12 hour flight. ‘Atlantico’ was not, but we recommend drinking a Fanta Passionfruit* and looking into the middle distance during listening. ‘Intersection’ is not a homage to the Morton Feldman piece of the same name, but does share the single use space of that piece. “Someone’s read a book once/who’s getting a fee for this?”, etc. ‘Repose’ was commissioned for Tempting Failure 18 by Dr Thomas John Bacon for playback in Croydon Council Chamber as part of an installation for escape, rest and contemplation in support of the mental health charity SANE.

“With Julius, he was based in repetition, but here was a spirit of openness and improvisation. His scores, if they were written out that way, were often like jazz scores. He loved multiplying instruments – four pianos, ten cellos – so there was a real feeling of the presence of the instrument, not just using an instrument in some kind of equation, as a means to an end.” ~ Mary Jane Leach
Enough said. pt
