Overture Tim J. Ward

Overture is a short electroacoustic overture, looking to imitate some of the panache of its operatic relatives. A broad spectrum of sonic materials are tersely introduced, colliding in closely packed rhythmic patterns. The rate of musical change is high, and by the end the listener is left waiting for the start of a following work, where the musical relationships so briefly seen promise to develop over a slower timescale.
