Redemption

Conway, Edward

About the work

The image I held in mind whilst writing this piece was one of the world, and civilisation, in terminal decline, disintegrating slowly at first, but at an accelerating pace. I compared this to the dance of Shiva, the god of destruction in Hindu mythology, hence most of the piece is an acceleration, with rhythms being thrown between players in a complex interplay. The redemption of the title arrives at the very end where the introduction of the marimba brings calmness.
