Fifteen Images (Le Jardin Pluvieux)

for keyboard instrument (with optional tenor part), and Active Notation system

The miniatures of Fifteen Images (Le Jardin Pluvieux) use colour as their main structural principle. The music is governed by mixtures of scalic colours, mirrored in the accompanying textiles. An open-form score is delivered digitally and accompanied by dynamic digital variations on textiles by Alice Fox to create an immersive and reflective experience for performer and audience.

Since being premiered by Matt Robinson during August 2009 at Farfield Mill textile centre in Cumbria, Fifteen Images has had a number of subsequent performances among them: the Pairings Conference, Manchester; Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival; Taking Time: Craft and the Slow Revolution and Bradford University.
