Spaces and Places: Weekly Task 1: Wilberforce Staircase

I have chosen a spiral staircase in the Wilberforce building for a short piece. The space has a really pronounced reverb, and I like the idea of height as well as direction being played with in the way it’s performed.

The idea is to have 4 musicians with fairly compact instruments stood a few stairs apart, and creating a ripple effect (or metachronal rhythm).

This is a rough draft, I’m going to refine it.
