Spectroscopy

Seven colours of the rainbow.

Seven musical timbres.

'Spectroscopy' uses a unique blend of musical genres to create a suite of music that cryptically harks each individual piece back to its respective place in the prism.

No two themes alike, no recurrence of musical ideas - 'Spectroscopy' presents seven completely unrelated musical motifs together in a suite designed to work as a collective as much as a compilation. By using seven different instruments individually against the familiar tones of the piano, the listener is already treated to seven entirely individual journeys, but to play them one after the other - the stark contrast guarantees an unusual and unpredictable - yet wholly satisfying - thirty minutes of musical venture.
