Discover all that in you trembles.
Scoff at all that slips away.
Dive in, knowing failure is certain.
Awake to yourself less cold.

Discover all that trembles in you.
Ridicule all that eludes you.
Leap, knowing you’ll fail.
Come alive to yourself less cold.

I have attempted to produce two ways of playing sonic elements (striking and rubbing) and of disseminating them (trajectories in the width and the depth of the stereophonic field), associating each with a specific type of trajectory and establishing their breaking points and harmonic angles through modulation.

[English translation: Tom Carter]

“An archetypal phrase; falling melodic contour, slow movement through the harmonic spectrum. Created from an apparently simple feedback loop, this archetype is explored in a kaleidoscope of extended phrases, sometimes fading away, sometimes abruptly interrupted, sometimes gradually disintegrating into constituent parts, always concerned with gradual evolution and changes of state.” — Simon Atkinson


Shioum was realized in the autumn of 1994 at the Electroacoustic Music Studios of the University of Birmingham (UK) and the studios of Northern College (Aberdeen, Scotland) and premiered on December 4, 1994 at the Midlands Arts Centre (Birmingham, UK).
