My aim with Woodwinds and Vibes was to create an atmospheric piece, with rich harmonies and an equality of instrumental interaction, but where individual timbres shine through. I chose this combination of instruments because I have a particular fondness for the sound of woodwinds, and for the pure metallic sound of the vibraphone. In visual terms, this piece could be seen as a series of floating images, which emerge into view then disappear. I was influenced especially by the music of Morton Feldman, with its hushed, rarefied sound world, and the simple beauty of single notes.
