  Work Details  
  Pair (even) - the balance between opposites (left/right, high/low, dry/resonant); equilibrium; the concept of stasis. Impair (odd) - the contradiction of pair; the element of imbalance which carries us out of stasis; the dynamic concept. Pair/Impair - an extension of the relationship between dynamic and static musics (and their confusion) - a relationship which in itself can fluctuate between the dynamic and the static. Pair/Impair was composed in 1978 in the Recording and Electronic Music Studio of the University of East Anglia. It received a Mention in the Analogue Category of the 1980 Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Awards.
