Ooda loop uses melodic minimalistic ideas with experimental extended techniques, which seek to immerse the listener in its rhythmic groove. The melodic idea has electronic overtones: an implied electronic sound-world in an acoustic trio. The piece was one of three pieces chosen for Britten Sinfonia’s OPUS 2017 competition and adjudicated by Jazz composer pianist-composer-producer Nik Bärtsch. Now in its fifth year, OPUS2017 offers unpublished composers the chance to receive a professional commission as part of Britten Sinfonia’s award-winning At Lunch series. Previous OPUS winners are among the best up-and-coming compositional talents in the UK. The piece was work-shopped in London's Southbank Centre with a trio (flute, clarinet and double bass) from The Britten Sinfonia.
