7.30 pm Jez riley French lecture on Intuitive Music

I am fascinated and passionate about the infinite detail and expanding vistas of life around us, its sights and sounds, often overlooked or hidden. My creative output focuses on this never ending, joyous exploration via intuitiv composition, conventional & extended field recording techniques, photography & photographic scores. The music / sound I create has evolved from improvisation to what I prefer to term 'intuitive composition' and has increasingly involved elements such as a love of audible silence & quietude & the empathy of compositional lines. These evolved from my need to always remain open to my emotive, intuitive response to situations & environments’
