Work Overview

A Ringing World takes its title from the continuous web of metal sounds set in motion by vibrators in the opening section, passing to the second, principal part titled 'Toy Tune', where the four components of toy piano, gongs and other light instruments function as independent entities in a slowly rotating sonic mobile, again a shifting topography in which the listener is left free to explore.
