Twilight Inversions for orchestra (2018)
Twilight Inversions has been written for the London Firebird orchestra after winning their Young Composer of the Year 2018 competition. The inspiration for Twilight Inversions came after seeing a beautiful and mesmerising time-lapse video by photographer Kris Williams of cloud inversions on Snowdonia. In this video the clouds flow like water over the contours of the mountains and the twilight sky shimmers above the clouds. The clouds are, in effect, inverted so they sit below our feet whilst a vibrant colourful twilight sky is seen above. The piece explores the effervescently delicate textures and colours of these time-lapse images, and reflects the dramatic movement and darkening of the clouds across the time-lapse.
