About this Piece

Talamh (land) comes from old Irish and is one of the three fundamental spaces of their cosmology: nem-talamh-muir: the sky, the earth, the sea. This work explores distinct and connected sonic landscapes, using structure and ensemble interactivity to foreground individual choices in pitch, registration, and timbre. It’s a way for me to connect to home and recall many of the rich and magical mountains, streams, and forests I walked through with my papa, Peter, in Ireland since very young. —inti figgis-vizueta
