Leo Chadburn – Vapour Descriptors (2014)

For two pianos (and pianists’ voices)
Premiered hcmf// 2014 (Kate Halsall, Fumiko Miyachi)

The vocabulary of the perfume industry is a strange thing; technical, scientific, archaic, evocative. The set of descriptors announced in the piece include some common and not-so-common terms that might be applied to scent, separated by the vapour trail resonances of harmonies that are either very closely or very distantly related, like a kind of varying interference.
