Shimmering

for violin and live electronics

The water ripples slowly, gently. You notice the light catch the tiny waves, the two combining in a rapid dance. These small movements draw your attention as each flash of light or wave of water shimmers creating a new and unique image forever changing, but at the same time, always the same.


I'd like to thank Eve Kennedy for her time, effort and advice through the composition of this piece.

Shimmering was first performed by Jonathan Morton in the Scottish Ensemble concert during the 2012 plug festival at the RCS.
