Additional Information

Written in response to John Constable's Seascape Study: Boat and Storm Sky, 20 July 1828; as part of the Royal Academy of Arts' 'In Tune with the RA Collection'.

'Drowning In The Din...' responds to how Constable's coastal scene balances areas of the naked canvas with raw, animated brushstrokes.

The exposed framework of the painting is reflected in the subtle clicks, breathes, shakes and buzzes that reverberate from the frameworks of the bass clarinet and bass guitar; and the vibrant gesture of the brushstrokes influenced the live electronics which consist of brushstroke recordings, triggered and manipulated in response to how the two instruments move and interact.
