||Canon for three violas or viola and delay
|Year/Date of Composition
|Composer Time Period
Canons fascinate me – they seem a perfect balance of surprise and familiarity, as each bar contains something old and something new. I also love how the advent of recording (and now digital sampling) has made it possible to play a canon, one of the most ancient musical structures, with oneself. Spiral is a big arch form, gradually getting busier and more intense, calming in the centre before running in reverse back to the opening material.
