Programme Notes
Other Presences was composed for Markus Stockhausen, with his electronic extensions. The principal idea is that the trumpet is multiplied and becomes present invisibly at other points in space. The sounds are very close to the Tibetan Buddhist open-air ceremonial music which I witnessed on a recent visit to monasteries at and near Rajpur. The ceremonies are rituals of purification. Other Presences was commissioned by the Cheltenham International Festival, supported by the Cheltenham Festival Society. JH
