Oceanography

David Chesworth

Oceanography is an almost completely synthesised soundscape that Chesworth describes as suggesting an 'underwater eco-system'. High, diatonic tones shimmer above humming chordal currents, frissons of static, pealing motifs...the characteristically dream-like timbral palette and steady but understated pulse give the work a theatrical quality well beyond immediate surroundings.
