ANAMORPHOSIS (2019) 5 min
for early-instrument trio
Programme Notes:
Anamorphosis, composed in 2019 for early-instrument trio and with a duration of five minutes, is an aural illusion whereby a distorted sonic image is re-formed and deformed again via a play of perspective. Whereas visual anamorphoses habitually imply spatial displacement on the observer’s part around them, it is in this work the sonic image that pivots on its axis, thence the listening angle continuously changing over time.
