About the work

In the art-form of photo-montage, an image is assembled from a mosaic of separate photographs taken from many angles, creating subtle fracturings and transformations of the original. This work explores the idea of photo-montage in musical terms, with a series of related fragments of music undergoing small-scale transformations in order to create a larger picture.
