Influenced by the hypothetical sound environment of the Renaissance, Meanderings by
the Masque is concerned with our fast changing environment. Our environment and its
sounds and activities hugely influence our experience in the world. With so many changes to our environment in the contemporary world, some of which being unconscious, how can we engage and understand these changes? Meanderings by the Masque is
influenced by elements of noise, continuation and subtle change. The music slowly
continues with several subtle surprises throughout.
