Shifting states (NZTrio Commission 2005) – 12.5′
Composer - Clement, Rachel
bullicante (with bubbles)
millefiore (thousand flowers)
This set of short pieces is inspired by an interest in mid-Twentieth Century glassmaking, in which the process of changing state, or changing phase, is essential to the production of the many types of art glass. Each piece is titled with the name of a different technique and express some of the processes of freezing, melting, vaporization, condensation and sublimation.
Shifting states was commissioned by NZTrio with funding from Creative New Zealand.
