Programme Note:
Our perception of the world is increasingly indirect, filtered through the media of audio and video recordings, as well as photography. Which recordings or pictures we see or hear are also increasingly filtered through social media algorithms that few of us understand or even know exist at all. Instead of a shared reality, or even a shared unreality, we more and more have our own individual realities which we believe to be real but which are not recognised by anyone else. This situation has had, and will continue to have, obvious and disastrous effects on our body politic, which relies on a shared reality in which we can ground our collective decisions about society and the environment. here, today is a piece about reproducing and sharing information about the environment. The string players share recordings of their local environment (made on the day of the performance), and most of the first half of the piece is recorded by the clarinetist and played back in the second half. The decisions of each performer and the composer, as well as the limitations of the recording and playback devices used, all affect what sounds are heard in the hall. Each performance will be different, and each listener in each performance will hear a subtly different piece. Are any of the myriad versions a true reflection of reality?

Programme Note:
fallings is cyclical. There are numerous cycles at work, some very short and easily recognisable as cycles, others repeat at longer intervals, and there is one 'cycle' which occurs only once. There are also overarching huge cycles which conceptually last for much longer than the piece, one of which is the ostensible theme of the work. That principal cycle is coming to its end, is in its period of decline. It is 'falling', dying out, sputtering. And, as a piece concerned with expressing this 'end of a cycle' period, even for the cycles which both rise and fall within the piece, there is an emphasis on the falling. Kenkō, in mappō-inflected Kamakura-era Japan, praised not the beauty of cherry blossoms on the tree, bursting out of their buds in a subtle revelation, but rather wrote of the beauty of the blossoms as they die, their short existence reminding us of the fragility of own lives. He wrote in a time of pessimism, but found beauty and comfort in the cycles of birth and death, even as he emphasised the ephemerality of all things. It is in the nature of the cyclical that after the fall, something new rises. Even though it focuses on falling, this is not a pessimistic piece. There is beauty in ruins, and hope in destruction: just look at the Colosseum in Rome, listen to the changing timbres of a plucked string as it disappears into silence, watch a cherry blossom as it falls.
