A Field of Islands is a movement from of a larger work written in collaboration with Kevin Ramsay. Drawing on a bewildering array of global experimental traditions, the piece is an evening length concert experience blending synesthetic illusion, elegy, aural spaces and their dissonant styles of post-colonial psychonautic research. The work requires performers who are both adept at the interpretation of notation and accomplished improvisers.
