Having fairly well exhausted the preparations I could make in stereo, it was excellent to finally be using four channels.
At this point I had a fairly clear idea of the structure / compositional framework I would be using for the concluding public event, though had not yet been able to experiment moving the sounds around a room. It was very pleasing to begin doing this, and I quickly grew more positive about how the works were developing. This sense of optimism in relation to a public performance is rather foreign to me. Usually I find the process challenging, and often unpleasant.
The time I’ve been afforded to focus on and develop my work, refining it in solitude, in addition to the sessions playing with Tim and Lily have been invaluable.
