Lockdown Sketch

I wrote this piece during Lockdown for my great friend, workshop leader and fab tubist Mike Poyser. I wanted to explore what was possible playing together when we can’t be in the same room, so I tried out several techniques which allowed for flexibility and responsiveness between us.  This recording we made over zoom, with internet glitches and all, and after we took lots of time adjusting mic levels and to make Zoom as responsive as we could to both our sounds, instead of prioritising one over the other.

The piece is part of a longer recital given by Mike and viola player Jenny Coombes and it’s at Remote Recitals
