Harmonio

Harmonio


This is my first completed, full-scale orchestral work.
(2016 version)

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.
