“Sound is the vocabulary of nature” – Pierre Schaeffer
Included in the selection of works from Hilltown New Music Festival 2013 Call for works. This was an open call for artists, composers and musicians to send a short audio work that responds, in some way, to the above quote.
Afternoon Walk is a musical accompaniment to the poem of the same title. The music and poem explore the role of non-determinate sounds in nature, the occurrence and resignation to fate that often transpires within the most natural of sounds and those that display a random nature that have in fact some formalism of structure. Although the generation of sounds combined here are electronic and man made, their initialisation ultimately transpires from incidents taking place in the natural world.
