(confront collectors series ccs 47)



James Weeks' mural is an extended work for two quartets of voices, a contemplation of our embeddedness within, and our being-at-one with, the world. Using texts from four different sources - writings of Cage and Pessoa, studies of Vermeer and the birdlife of Gateshead - the music accumulates brick-by-brick, reflecting the way we construct and enclose ourself within the spaces we live in, both interior and exterior.
