Total Immersion: Kaija Saariaho

‘Total Immersion’ is a good way of describing the music of the Finnish composer, Kaija Saariaho. The spectral sonorities that she creates by synthesising, manipulating and layering timbres, harmonies and rhythms form vast, dynamic sonic landscapes that shift and shimmer, and seem literally to embrace the listener, drawing them into a multi-sensory world.
