WORK AND BREATHE (excerpt: July 2010 played by Robert Carrington and Paul Neville).
This piece is played on bowed Sculpted Sound structures. It uses both the objects and the different materials from which they are suspended to create a piece where friction is all important. The title refers to the fact that these are activities for performers that mirror “work”. They use sawing and some hammering sounds. The piece was inspired by the Futurist Manifesto and commissioned by Derek Shiel, the creator of Sculpted Sound.
