"Vibrant Islands" is a cycle of 9 pieces for acoustic vocal performance, made in 2015.
Each movement consists of a number of "islands" containing phonetic signs, many of which were invented by myself.
For many years I have been working on my personal extension of the International Phonetic Alphabet: BLIPAX (BLonks IPA eXtended).
In the performance the islands can be visited in any order, and repeatedly as well. In every score of the cycle the coastal lines have a different form,
for instance angular, crenelated, straight or rounded, according to the prevalent sound character of the movement.
For a performance of this work an intimate room with good acoustics works best. A complete performance of "Vibrant Islands" can last between 18 and 45 minutes.
There are coloured versions as well.
