Abstract

The Escher Café is a composition for quintet and electronics and is based on a series of M.C. Escher engravings. In this work I aim to employ compositional techniques (including instrumental and timbral polymeter, metric and scale illusion, motif tesselation and apart-playing) to create musical analogues to the visual illusions in the Escher works. Commissioned by the Living Room in London ensemble, it has been performed by them internationally. The piece has been performeances across Europe with performances in Kings Place (London), Exeter (UK), Manchester (UK) Zwetti (Austria), Innsbruck (Austria), Seekirchen (Austria), Ziri (Austria), Wein (Austria), Passau (Germany), Liepzig (Germany) and Berlin (Germany). http://livingroominlondon.com/
