Scintilla (electroacoustic music, 2013)

Scintilla - a spark, a glimmer, a particle of fire, a glittering speck.
Scintilla started life with the hand made, flame-worked, glass instruments made by Carrie Fertig for her Torcher Chamber Arkestra's performance at the British Glass Biennale in 2012. Sounds from these intriguingly shaped objects create a dense, powerful, resonant texture but at the same time hints at their fragility and vulnerability.

First performance Reid Hall, Edinburgh 2013
