Dennis Smalley - Impacts Intérieurs CD 20527
"An important distinguishing feature of the five works on this compact disc is the relationship between gesture and texture. Musical gesture, derived from our experience of physical gesture, is concerned with the tendency for sound-shapes to move towards or away from goals in the musical structure; it is concerned with growth, temporal evolution, sense of forward direction, the impact of events, dramatic surface. Texture, however, is more about interior activity, the patterns inside sounds, about encouraging the ear to contemplate inner details; it is often more about standing still and observing the behaviours of sounds rather than pressing onwards through time. Gesture can be textured, and textures can be formed from gestures ? the interplay and balance between them lie at the heart of our experiences in musical time.
