Electronic music, Em 16 - Moment of a Butterfly.

Moment of a Butterfly - Rh 201. Moment in the sense of a physical quantity, as there are said to be moments of inertia, as a unit measurement of something tangible, quite what in this analogy a Moment of a Butterfly could be I can't say, but it would be a linguistic delight to try and do so. Butterflies have a long history in my Art, in Pictures and poetry, I used to describe the creative process as being not simply making a silk purse out of a sows ear, as the old maxim forbids, but to make a butterfly out of one, then 'Take' the 'Moment' of it, I presume. I took this piece to Huddersfield University's Music Dept. on a visit to meet then Head of Contemporary music there Dr James Saunders, which meeting would prove Vastly important to me. Firstly he assured me 'Moment' was a good piece, secondly he asked me to partake in the Improvisation group they were holding that day, which I was allowed to record, and which became the Album the 'Huddersfield Impromptu - Three Undirected Pieces' - which is free to download on my Master Grid ''. Also from that Seminal meeting would come the 4 disc set 'Assign after the music of Dr James Saunders' - MSEP 19, again from the Master Grid or my MSEP Grid.

Moment and a Butterfly - Rh 202. Conceptualising on the word 'moment' again, but this time with a temporal implication, a moment in or from time, with the butterfly, captured as is it were, frozen in a moment like perhaps the frame of a film, and the duration of that frame's exposure is that moment.

Distinguished French Composer, The Great Frederick Kojevnikov said of This Album that "Julian Broadhurst writes a music which hovers out of time and which altogether sounds like time itself."

British Contemporary Composer Mark Yeats said that its - "a haunting, slowly drifting musical mobile - a soft sound mass revealing different perspectives as its rotations gently unfold" - 18th October 2015

American Composer Brandan Nelson said "such mesmerizing music...truly put me in another "place." You have a rare gift."
