Dry Shadows draws on the idea of fragmentary colouring, and the trajectory and resonance of these fragments through blending different combinations of the instruments. It inhabits a sparse world of very specific material and gestural flow. Intentionally discontinuous, Dry Shadows explores the sound relationships between and across the instruments. Sudden loud, spiky punctuations in the music, as well as the numerous more delicate colours and shadowy sonorities in between these interjections, give rise to a sense of mystery in the music.
