|I dreamed on singing flowers|
This is a work written purely for electronics, commissioned by BBC proms 2012, for 100th year of John Cage tribute concert. The track is designed to be heard on earphones while you walk around Kensington Gardens and Prince's Gardens close to the Royal Albert Hall. In this work I have used mainly two recorded sounds as the basis from which I derived the electronic sounds to compose the work. The sources were: 1 chord played on a Sho (Japanese mouth organ) and background noises I recorded around Royal Albert hall.
I tested listening to this piece in the park, and also in my local park in south east London. Listening to the track on earphones, you hear a blend of the sounds in the piece with actual sound from birds in the park, some car noises in front of me, plus the sound of kids playing games in the park.
