In his book 'Invisible Cities', Calvino describes one city, Venice, in many ways. The reader believes that different cities are being depicted, yet the cities still resemble one another. The imaginable cities are assembled with a connecting thread, an inner rule, a perspective, a discourse. This could be thought of as the essence of the musical work: one city is described, with memories and glimpses of this original place referred to as the piece progresses. Whilst one is led on a diverse journey, fragments of melody form a connecting thread through the score, linking movements together.

This title represents more than just the inspiration of its source however. Separate ideas are often presented in each part. They exist alongside and are sometimes even influenced by one another, but they are - for the most part - invisible entities, inhibiting separate worlds. These are my imagined invisible cities.
