Scrapes and Sighs makes use of common kitchen items such as metal fruit stands, oven trays and porcelain bowls. Struck in the manner of a singing bowl, these everyday vessels produce pure harmonics which are teased out into strings of sound. The work progresses from its initial meditative section into a much busier world of gaudy, processed sound. These shards pivot and ricochet around the sound space in broken envelopes before settling back into a calmer mood.

Originally composed for 12 monophonic channels and premiered at Multiple Monophonies (Massey University, Wellington), 2020. It is recommended that good quality headphones are used to fully experience this work.
