Tidal Breath

Combining vibraphone, cymbals, electronics, and aluminium harp, this piece (commissioned by Sound and Music, and performed by pioneering percussionist Joby Burgess), is inspired by cycles, small scale and large, and how our memories change when we revisit them.

The aluminium harp (or 'Canna Sonora') is an incredibly unique instrument, with a high pitched sound that seems to ring forever. Joby is also the only percussionist to own one in the UK (yet!)
