Sasha Scott: Introspection

Sasha Scott: Introspection

This piece was written on the Composition and Performance Course in 2022 and performed in the Aldeburgh Festival in June 2023. The Composition and Performance Course is part of the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme. More information here: Sasha Scott: "I started writing Introspection on the Britten Pears Young Artist Course in Aldeburgh, November 2022. Over the course I found myself quite disconnected from my life in London and often found myself with only my inner thoughts, and I wanted this piece to be reflective of that emotional process. The word ‘Introspection’ is the observation of one’s own mental and emotional processes. I wanted this piece to reflect on circling and swirling thoughts going around someone’s head; and at times spiralling out of control. I wanted to emulate this by creating clouds of distorted textures and echoing chords reverberating around the performance space."
