Full text not available from this repository.


TEASE was written for and is dedicated to Mary Dullea as part of her investigation into music which explores an expanded soundworld through playing on the inside and outside of the piano. Whilst continuing threads of interest from previous pieces, such as a fascination with virtuosity, improvisation, incorporation of extended techniques and use of live electronics, this piece opens up new paths of exploration, particularly with regard to formal structuring and to timbral colouring. The title refers to the generation of sound using the extended techniques required in the piece where notes have to be literally teased out of the instrument. TEASE begins with a short introduction followed by 12 short sections, the order of which is decided by the performer, before ending with a brief coda.
