Always Ever Unknowable (2016) – female vocal trio, choir and trombone quartet


Always, Ever Unknowable uses a text by Helene Grøn based on the life and works of Lord Kelvin. The musical material was derived from my musical interpretation of John Stewart Bell’s work, a quantum physicist and my great uncle.

The piece is divided into seven sections with each using a different combination of the three ensembles with the trombones surrounding the audience to enable the music to both move around and engulf the audience.

Commissioned by Cottier Chamber Project.
