On Sunday afternoon my Mum and I went to see my harp teacher, Fiona Rutherford's new composition Sleep Sound . "This piece is an exploration of sleep and dreams", I thought the music was very soft and mostly peaceful to listen to. There were five movements each with a silence in between. The piece was freely structured around sleep patterns with movements entitled Settle; Lullaby; Insomnia; Nightmare and Flying Dream. The musicians featured were Fiona Rutherford (composer) on celtic harp, Anna Wendy Stevenson and Shona Mooney on violins; Mairi Campbell, violin and vocals; Su-a -Lee on cello; Amy Duncan, double bass and vocals; Lauren Mackie, piano; Rachel Newton, harps and vocals; Colin Scott Moncrieff, narrator. A poem was narrated throughout the piece which added to the structure of the work, and words were sung in between the narration. I would like to listen again to a recording of Sleep Sound, to be able to fully appreciate the different textures of the music. From Nightmare, a discordant and jarring piece to Flying Dream, with its soft and tuneful melody.
