10_35_70 has been performed in London and Manchester…

To my father, Peter, and my nephew, Sam

This music was inspired by my thoughts regarding age and passing time. Sometimes time does not pass swiftly enough, yet on other occasions it moves by too quickly. During the ageing process one’s experience of time passing changes (days, weeks, months, and years go by more quickly than ever), while one’s bodily functions gradually slow down. Thus, the concept behind the piece developed into the idea of ‘slowing down.’ This is represented in the music by a process in which intensity, variability and volatile activity gradually tend towards calmness. As such the music is concerned with the processes of change.
