Unravelling Graphite Jakob Bragg pg 3 excerpt

Programme Note
Unravelling Graphite is a slowly evolving spectrum of sound. Composing over such a long period of time, this work was constantly in a state of editing, re-working, refining, and revisiting. The outcome has been material which is morphed and twisted, quickly collapsing, slowly rebuilt, forevermore transformed.
