Zeta Potential

(2012)   for large ensemble

Released by Huddersfield Contemporary Records: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/zetapotential

Commissioned by the European Composers Professional Development Programme, Zeta Potential was composed in 2012 for Amsterdam’s Nieuw Ensemble.

Zeta Potential plays with the capability of the ensemble and texture to remain as a coordinated and balanced system. The piece traces a constant flux between stable and unstable textures, framed around cycles of growing and decaying musical patterns which undergo constant transformation. Zeta Potential is a calculation which measures the stability of semi-fluid/semi-solid substances; it indicates the potential for the material to remain in its present state.

Zeta Potential was premiered by Nieuw Ensemble at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival on 21 November 2012, and the piece received its Dutch premiere on 23 November 2012 at Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
