The words of M.C. Escher, ‘My work is a game, a very serious game’, are fitting for an artist whose work so effectively combines wit and a sense of playfulness, with mathematical ingenuity. One may argue that it is the very combination of these qualities that makes so many of Escher’s images so memorable. Much of the music I admire most also seems to contain elements of both, in particular that of György Ligeti and Conlon Nancarrow. Such an attitude to creativity resonates strongly with my approach to composition, and I aspire to write music which shares these qualities.
