of violet ether

[vln, vla] [bfl, vc] [e.gt, tba, db] [pf, hp, perc]


Of violet ether comprises three sonic islands which do not know that each other exist: a low underworld made of electric guitar, tuba and double bass weathering cyclically through a sea of sparkling mud, a strip of undulating fabric formed by the bass flute and cello, and a stream of drifting metallic particles from the violin and viola. A fourth composite of harp, piano and percussion acts not so much as an island but as a mobile force, a sonic antennae that can branch its ears and handles outward to all three islands, moving between them, carrying changing sonic colours, energies, and matter (violet ether) amongst them.
