‘Final Call’ was written for the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama‘s ‘Soundbar’ concert series. I wrote this piece specifically for the accoustic of the Conservatoire’s foyer where my piece was to be performed, so tried to fully exploit the big space with lots of percussive effects which would reverberate to create a warm dense sound. This piece is my first venture into ‘Granular Synthesis’ and explores the concept of time, pulling it back and forth, eventually reaching a stable point. Sounds originally used in the granular synthesizer include a tenor saxophone and a piano! I also warped a lot of recordings for this piece such as vocal ‘Oohs’ and bass drum rolls.
