It is evident that this composer has a clear idea of the world they want to explore and is dedicated to it fully. The subdued dynamic range invites very close listening. There is a careful attention to colour and texture throughout the two pieces, and a uniqueness to their timbral worlds. The harmonies are stunning throughout, their colour almost visible, like a painting or a landscape. The composer resists the urge to hop from palette to palette, however, instead lingering on often unexpected combinations and registers to allow us to hear the subtlety of each hue. The works demonstrate a strong marrying of poetry, music and art in this composer, creating a unique sound world.
