About

(un)seen was written as music for dance in collaboration with choreographer Justyna Janiszewska. It explores the boundary between what is seen and unseen, known and unknown, heard and unheard. The music for this piece is built upon ideas influenced by gamelan music, mainly the idea of building a rhythmic texture up from the one rhythmic line layered on to of itself at different speeds. Each section explores a different aspect of the relationship between these different layers. However, this rhythmic framework itself is never fully exposed, and so itself remains unheard while it exerts an influence on the piece from a distance.
