Additional Information

Insectivorous grew from a fascination with the movement of carnivorous plants and the mechanisms that they have developed to capture and break down prey.

With each section of the piece following different stages of the plants' feeding processes, the ensemble itself becomes an organism that treats musical material like prey - dissolving, tearing and transferring it across different instrumental groups.
