Chase (2020)

for Lead Theremin & Theremin Ensemble


“This piece should be interpreted playfully. The lead Theremin selects and plays the notated gestures, while the ensemble seek to follow and imitate the leader. The ensemble are variously instructed to follow more or less closely, and the natural and expected latency between the lead Theremin and the individual ensemble players are a key feature of the piece.”



This work was premiered on the 19th February 2020, as part of the Theremin Centenary Concert hosted by the Loudspeaker Orchestra, celebrating 100 years since the invention of the Theremin.
