about

DS005

Arioso is a two-part exploration into loop-based composition recorded in the winter of 2020/21 in Cork. The pieces were built upon fragments of a string quartet's performance of an arioso, breathing new life into mostly forgotten melodies.

These hopeful yet melancholic audio programmes indulge in repetitive gestures that swell like tears from rising tides against concrete car parks on a cold, rainy night as the city drifts into sleep. The illusion of perpetuity endures until one surrenders into the ephemeral moment. Each repeated cycle creates a unique moment that remains even after the music has faded. "The temporality of an instant may radiate the twinkle of eternity."
