Details

The energy, sense of endless movement and of exhaustion encapsulated in the poem permeates the music. Important also is the play with paradoxical ideas, for example the contrary notion that something moving quicker than the human eye is able to detect can appear to be motionless or still.

Harnessed to this energetic charge; in the work are expressions of ideas that resulted from my contemplation of Sizewell Power Station which I drew on as a source of inspiration; a different take on Britten's landscape if you like. Mesmerised by the relentlessness of the structures, the constant shifts in perspective as you chase the power source across the countryside: restlessly in view - out of view... The constant duality of the power lines, an underlying energy- hidden and intimate almost, yet zinging with immense power and force. Another duality is found in the fragility that comes hand-in-hand with this amount of manufactured power: that it could stop momentarily or end permanently.
