27 June 2019, Talk: How Forests Think – making music in an ecological register
[Ecological perspectives have enabled me to think about composition as a way of populating musical spaces with ‘creatures’ rather than structural forms. These beings are made of unlikely hybrids: real assemblages of (human) musicians and (non-human) musical instruments as well as fictional composites of plants, animals, elements, spirits and all kinds of cultural ideas joined in speculative play. The symbiotic join might be across taxonomic categories – a sonic behaviour with a cultural/metaphorical idea, a technical challenge with a temporal or affective trace – the results are often unruly, fuzzy and hard to define using standard musicological terms. One has to shift to a weirder, fictional register of symbolic thought in order to appreciate these creatures – mundane and magical, haunted by real-world loss and unusual vitalities – they prompt questions about subjectivity, agency and authorship.]
