‘pleasantly tropical luxuriance’ (Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph, 18/1/2011)

‘Brian Inglis uses overblowing, multiphonics, key clicks and flutter-tonguing to create contrasting ritornellos against the traditional counterpoint and folksy chorale around which his work, Burmese Pictures, rotates.’ (Garrett Schumann, www.sequenza21.com, 21/12/2010)

Commissioned by Josh Htet for Consortium 5. Spoken word texts by George Orwell and Aung San Suu Kyi.

First perfomred by Consortium 5, Christ Church Spitalfields, 15th May 2010.

Burmese Pictures has been recorded by Consortium 5 on Nonclassical NONCLASS 008 (+ remixes): see www.nonclassical.co.uk.
