JAMES SEYMOUR BRETT

 
 

Polyplexes

 

This collection features elaborate strokes of rhythmic and harmonic colour. Scored for small string ensemble, a plethora of percussion tuned and untuned and under the baton of Chris George this album marked a departure from the full orchestra James had become used to.

Conceived in a minimalist style and exploring bi-tonal sonorities Polyplexes is an interesting addition to James’s output in the last few years and serves as a relation to 2014’s Time Mantras for three pianos.
