The 'terrain' in this piece is a membranic, prismatic surface, perhaps water. From deep below, anything might emerge. This is the third of the series of pieces 'diffracted terrains' in which I explore symmetry and asymmetry in the structural, timbral and spatial dimensions. The first was composed in 2005 for bass clarinet and double bass followed by 'DT Remix' for bass clarinet and live electronics and the more recent 'diffracted terrains: duo ii' for violin, horn and piano resonance. 'diffracted terrains:quintet' was commissioned by Boundstone College as part of the Real Spaces Project in 2005. Lontano gave it its first two performances in November 2005 at St Michael's Church, Lancing and at the Purcell Room in London. The revised version was performed in Sheffield and at the Brighton Soundwaves Festival in June 2007.
