Co-commissioned by Aldeburgh Music and 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England and by the Department for Culture Media and Sport.

Futurist sculpture from the early Twentieth Century drives the concept behind Stone Dancer. From this source, the substance, power and implied movement, captured in each of the sculptures, weave the three pieces together. Following a Futurist approach, and as illustrated well in other works by Bray, such as At the Speed of Stillness, the paradoxical notion of displaying movement and a sense of stillness in one 'image' is built through varying layers within the piece, on both harmonic and rhythmic planes. The artwork inspiring the music: Henri Gaudier-Brzeska's Red Stone Dancer, Raymond Duchamp-Villon's Large Horse and Umberto Boccioni's Unique Forms of Continuity in Space were all created during the years 1913-14, and each of the artists served, in some capacity, in the First World War.
