the wave (2015) for electric guitar

This work was inspired by the photography of Louth artist, Jason McCarthy. I was struck by his stunning photograph of the Mourne Mountains. It presents both the physical image of the mountains while also suggesting a more abstract interpretation of ocean waves. I was influenced by McCarthy’s use of perception here and decided to write a musical response to it.
