Graham Instrall: Relate (1997)

Whilst participating in a recording session with Daniella Ganeva I was introduced to an amazing recording system known as Sensaura. For three days we were ‘watched’ by a pair of microphones built inside a dummy head! The extraordinary stereo effect (which also conveys height and depth!) inspired me to write a duet that could demonstrate this effect fully. Using an unusual collection of instruments, including Tibetan Bells, Thai gongs, Cymbals, Hihats and Log Drums spread around the dummy head, I explored as many rhythmic devices as possible. The result is a kind of feud between the players who never completely resolve their differences. The title ‘Relate’ is a reference to the Marriage Guidance Counselling service who often deal with similar problems!
