Inclusive Improv

Papyrus explores the wide variety of spatial motions, trajectories and perspectives which can be created through the manipulation of a seemingly simple and lifeless material - paper. Through the course of the work the sounds of paper gather energy and form increasingly animated behaviours within a changing abstract landscape. There are four sections, each one seemingly revealed through a metaphorical ‘tearing’ of the wallpaper.

Papyrus was awarded the Prix Destellos 2009 (Argentina), was a prizewinning work in the 10th Electroacoustic Composition Competition Música Viva 2009 (Portugal) and received a Honourable Mention in the Pauline Oliveros Prize for Electroacoustic Music 2009 (USA).
