Flannan Isle

Flannan Isle, 2 octaves, level 2, 2020, Score Exchange

The music was created to accompany Wilfred Wilson Gibson's poem about the Flannan Isle lighthouse mystery, which recounts the unexplained disappearance in the year 1900 of the lighthouse keepers stationed on the Flannan Isles in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of mainland Scotland.

This piece uses singing-bell handbell technique. There's optional inclusion of rainsticks to set the scene of the ever-present all-surrounding sea. There’s audience participation in this piece too, to capture the sense of the wind, invite your audience every time the music plays to simply rub their palms together until the music stops and remain quiet while they hear the narrated words.
