Frameworks was written in 2017 as part of a two piece piano set: Impulses and Frameworks.

The title Frameworks has a two-fold meaning. Firstly the electronic part is made from recordings of various objects played on a stripped down piano frame. Secondly it is also a reference to a more rigid approach that I applied to the form of the piece.

The creation of the work was kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland Bursary Award 2016.
