tambo was inspired by a friend’s gift of a tambourine. the gestural potential and resonant qualities of the instrument were intriguing, and stimulated an investigation into sounds of a similar nature. the work seeks to explore the different sound worlds suggested by the physical construction of the tambourine, but without using it as a sound source. instead, the piece uses sound sources that are of a similar nature to the sound types found in the instrument, but which are of a more extreme physical dimension, both enlarged and compacted. tambo was completed in the electroacoustic music studios at city university, london, 2004.
