Renderings I is the first piece in a planned series of works where I aim to explore the possibilities of variation forms.

In Renderings I, four distinct passages of music are first displayed: (1) wide ranged sustained chords with swells, (2) short accented chords with an echo pitch, (3) a longer section with a clarinet solo accompanied by the strings and then, finally (4) a brief pointillistic and more percussive texture. By rendering these four sections through different sets of processes, new materials is created. This way of working gives materials which branch out in many different directions yet connected through structures, gestures and timbres.
