Huddersfield-based composer Bryn Harrison wrote this piece for solo piano, performed by Philip Thomas, using threads of tones which are repeated with subtle variation until they attain a mysterious, labyrinthine quality.

Harrison, Bryn

Harrison, Bryn: Vessels (Another Timbre)
Label: Another Timbre    
Released in: UK    

"An extraordinary 76-minute work for solo piano, played by Philip Thomas, and composed by Bryn Harrison, a Huddersfield-based composer who is quietly building something of a cult reputation for his distinctively minimal and repetition-based music."-Another Timbre

"Vessels works with threads of tones which are repeated with subtle variation until they attain a mysterious, labyrinthine quality. I tried to get across this sense of the music being perpetually regenerative, of constantly opening up but then finding ourselves in the same space....WhatI am constructing are chains of pitches with repeating self-similar intervals that go round and round."-Bryn Harrison
