Additional Information

The title, Shrouded: Together and Against describes the key elements featured in this work for solo piano. Shrouded refers to the right pedal that buries the musical material into a washy sound, while ‘Together and Against’ links to the polyrhythms that at either start together, play in unison or go against each other.

Throughout the whole duration of the work it is in the lower register, this is due to my own fascination with the quality of the sound, as when it is paired with the sustain pedal, it produces and murky effect.

The piece was written and developed as part of the Psappha Ensemble’s Composing For... Scheme between October 2019 and February 2020, and was written in collaboration with the ensemble’s pianist, Benjamin Powell, which this piece dedicates itself to.
