a piece of horizon has been arching ur back (2020)

for Harry Gorski-Brown (for solo violin)

12 minutes

Programme note​

  1. that the whole world is contained in a grain of sand

  2. trying to smooth your body out so that you can become underwater in a shallow stream, in what used to be the deepest part of the river, in the only water in Fisherfield, which is melting off the snowfield of the Maiden. Flat, high summer.

  3. heavy / light; coda (long and free)


 

we washed in rivers

and smelled like shady river banks

and dark red peaty water.
