Simpson, Diana [Composer] (2008) Topographia. (Soundscape). stereo audio. (Submitted)


This work aims to explore various sonic landscapes and topologies through variations in implied proximities, densities and the kinetic behaviour of the sound materials. Topographia emerged from a project in which seven composers created a work using the same source material, this being a collection of 12 short samples from Denis Smalley’s Wind Chimes, released for use by the composer himself. Bearing in mind Smalley’s interest in spatial attributes in electroacoustic music, it seemed appropriate to explore this particular area through the sonic material. In many respects Topographia is particularly influenced by Smalley’s Valley Flow, a work which greatly influenced my early compositions.
