Présence II (2 × CD) Velocity


Peter Batchelor

  • Year of composition: 1996
  • Duration: 9:57

This piece involves an exploration of ways in which speed (or, conversely, stagnancy) might be implied entirely through the use of sound, both ‘real’ and ‘unreal’, and placed within a context that allows it free reign as a musical device.

Cinematic elements suggesting movement have been combined with gestures and textures of varying energy and complexity — the electroacoustic medium permiting fluid interaction between the two.
