“Beyond the Horizon”
Note from the composer
Beyond the Horizon features various note bending techniques developed by the composer to evoke the feelings of floating beyond the atmosphere. Celestial Spirals features a buzzing sound from having a paperclip resting at the base of just one string to create an alternative sound world which underlines the spirals that flow through the piece before coming back to its original starting point. There is a video demonstrating the techniques used in both pieces here.
