Matrices was composed in 2013 for piano and/or other instruments. There are seven movements with a total duration of approximately ten minutes.Although the piece is suitable for performance by piano, other instruments may be used instead or in addition. Other instruments may play in a different octave if this aids playing at the indicated tempi and dynamics.Programme note:The word 'matrix' (plural 'matrices') has several meanings, including "a mass of fine-grained rock in which gems, crystals, or fossils are embedded". The subtitles of the seven movements of this piece refer to geological layers around the South West of England and particularly in the coastal area known as Black Ven, between Lyme Regis and Charmouth in Dorset. This area is noted for its fossils, including those collected and documented by Elizabeth Philpot (1780–1857) and her sisters and Mary Anning (1799-1847).
