Notes
  • Currently, the voice, books and FIRE series remains unfinished. The final piece, voice, books and FIRE II/3, is due to be completed by 2019. The original score to voice, books and FIRE I however, remains lost.
  • The solo sections of the original score to A Catalogue of Sounds have been lost and the sketches are no longer extant. Parts 1-10 remain lost, whilst 11-13 have been recreated using fragments of the string ensemble parts. The published score features 4 violins, 5 violas, 3 violoncellos and 1 contrabass.
  • For the Solo series (currently I-V), any constituent parts may be played simultaneously. For example: Solo I+II+III or Solo II+IV+V.
