          Abstract

          Seeking to develop an enhanced awareness of how sound is heard and interpreted “One Stone for Hermione Levi” is an original composition exploring the relationship between spontaneity, creativity and improvisation. Using sounds that are often left unheard, this composition begins and ends with the composer’s heartbeat, creating opportunities to realise the potential of using digital technologies to record, sample and create new sounds using human sources. In this paper, I consider a number of compositional possibilities that may begin to define and recognise the importance of silence as a means to a compositional end. There will be silence, interspersed with bursts of sound, multi-layered to create an illusion of movement through the application of real and virtual instrumentation. Computer-aided compositional strengths and weaknesses will be explored as the concept of presenting sound without visual imagery is discussed. Exploring the uniqueness of sound as a means of expression and individual interpretation, One Stone for Hermione Levi considers two primary questions: ‘what do I see when I hear this sound?’ and ‘how do I find stillness in a multi-sensory world?’
