Excerpt: Paisley Abbey

Creation is the second performance show created for a chapel or other highly reverberant space. It consists of a self-made instrument, and a number of singing bowls and chimes spread throughout the building and remotely triggered, to create an enveloping sound-field around the space.

The central instrument is a seven string zither that utilises four bridges to create a range of overtones and playing options, as well as a robotic player mechanism and rotating plectrum.

The full setup consists of zither, voice, bells, chimes and electronics and multi-channel surround, the number and location of speakers depending on the space.

Made with support from Cryptic.

Duration: approx 1 hour
