Fire Designs

Posted on Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Check out this fantastic proposed design for my 20x12 Fire piece. The choristers (around 150 of them) form a giant soap-box-raised circle and a forest of wax torches forms the centerpiece. The audience comes in via the two gaps in the circle. Thanks for Mandy Dike and The World Famous, both for this awe-inspiring design and for allowing me to reproduce this here.

I've created what I hope will be quite an intense meditation on fire, with musical phrases repeating and bouncing around the circle. I finished the piece a few days ago and it's now making its way round to the various choirs that will be involved, so they have plenty of time to learn it. Coming to Salisbury, Brighton, Spitalfields and London's South Bank Center in May and June.
