Matthew Schellhorn features on a new CD of works by award-winning composer Patrick Nunn.

Morphosis

Partnering Sarah Mason (percussion), Maria Oldak (violin) and the composer himself (electronics), Matthew Schellhorn performs Transilent Fragments and Isochronos, of which he gave the World Premiere in 2010.

Composer Patrick Nunn writes: "This CD showcases a selection of solo and duo works written between 1998 and 2015. Spanning seventeen years of creative development, the works represent a clear distillation of musical thought that aims to express musical ideas as evolutionary objects along a temporal trajectory."
