Inspired by the full and dark sound of British brassbands, “Mining for Modulations” evokes a nostalgic vision of the British Isles. Resonating with William Blake’s visions and eminiscent of the 1980s miner’s strike as immortalised in Mark Herman’s film “Brassed Off”. Composed in 2020 for Zinc & Copper’s first Well Tuned Brass series and also a contribution to Augustin Maurs’ project KANÔN, QĀNŪN, CANON (…) Playing Differences – a suite of practices, pieces and concerts.
