Work Introduction

Supposed Spaces explores the intersection between music and architecture. The work aims to evoke a journey through an imaginary building with various extraordinary rooms, corridors and spaces. As a composer, I am interested in the similarities between a physical architectural experience and an abstract listening experience. Each room is defined by a general atmosphere (hushed, dark, joyous, manic, serene, etc.), but also by more specific elements: room dimensions, amount of light in the room, function of the room, etc. These attributes are translated into music, generating unique structures for organizing rhythm, pitch and other musical characteristics.
