Didi plays Kris Lennox's 'The Inescapable Light 3'

110 views 1 week ago
Didi playing 'The Inescapable Light 3'. This is from a set of 4 pieces titled 'The Inescapable Light'.

The set is my nod to minimalism.

I sometimes think of sound in terms of light - not necessarily colour - but luminosity. I like the idea of constant light, and 'The Inescapable Light' is my musical description of this.

Audio will be available soon - as should the score from Music Sales. Again, once the materials are available/uploaded, i'll put links here.

The video - I had to wait quite a while to get a sunny day in Scotland! The image is light hitting the surface of the sea. I copied the vid 4 times, then flipped each vid to make the water move from each compass direction - giving in places the illusion of luminosity moving in towards a central point. Colour was then added and synchronised with the chord changes.

This vid took quite a while to make, purely due to the processing required for the videos. Premiere has to render the images, and the first minute alone took over 27 hours to render!

The Inescapable Light 3 is in 14/16 time (or you could think 7/8). This and #2 are 'stable' (i.e one time signature throughout), with the outer two works having varying meters. There is a numeric/mathematical underpinning to each work, and to the set as a whole. The underpinning was the early stage of the composition, with the harmony/harmonic progression being added once the structure was formalised.
