The Sound We Inhabit (2019)

The Sound We Inhabit - EPK from Benjamin McDonnell on Vimeo.

Developed at the Chisenhale Studio Residency in August 2019.

The work comprises composition, performance, installation and graphic scores.

'The Sound We Inhabit' (2019) is based around the dissonance between my desire for quick, responsive and temporary architectures and the need for longer term stability and support.
The composition is organised in 5 movements. It was written for Korean Flute (otherwise know as Teagum), Violin, Electric Guitar and Bass Clarinet. The work is written using a graphic score, a non traditional pictorial form of notation to deliver the minimum structure that the musicians need in order to work together to create the piece.
