Harmonio

Harmonio
This is my first completed, full-scale orchestral work.

Musical ideas derived from the opening theme are developed throughout the rest of the work. The opening motifs are also significant to the structure of the composition; they indicate the start of new sections. However, unlike most of my other contemporary music, it is written without a pre-planned form. The main intention of this work is to explore how subtle orchestral timbres can be deployed to create a tense and dramatic atmosphere. ‘Harmonio’ is a term that I have created to indicate ‘harmonic resonance’ - an orchestral technique that produces subtle changes of timbre. Layering certain pitches on top of each other causes a particular reverberation; a harmonic disturbance which is intended to produce sympathetic vibrations.
