Composed by Alex Taylor, in collaboration with visual artist Simon Ingram.
What music would a machine listen to if it could do so? What would an orchestra sound like if it were a machine, and what might it visualise? Recently these questions have been on the minds of composer Alex Taylor and artist Simon Ingram. Assemblage is a living thing made of many moving parts: strings, woodwind, brass and a machine’s seemingly alien form. Yet in its inexorable slowness and rhythm this machine envisions itself less as an object of destruction than as something generative, while in its imagining of a machinic sound, a symphony orchestra looks out onto the C21.
Commissioned by Orchestra Wellington
