Programme Notes

Grind Show is a superimposition of two scenes: the foreground in a bawdy dance hall, and the background a rainy landscape at night. The acoustic instruments play out a drama with a dialogue of irregular dances, while the electronics depict a sinister outside world. While composing grind show I saw a painting by Goya: ‘The St Isidore Pilgrimage’, which shows a crowd of debauched and frightened revelers appearing to flee across the hills from a distant town. It’s painted over an earlier landscape on which, in turn, the figures were superimposed. (Tansy Davies)
