Time of Dreams comprises both recent music by Jon
Keliehor and selections from as early as 2000. Most of this
music has been created for contemporary dance and
shows an astonishing range of diversity. These are melodic
and percussion-rich territories, contoured with electro-
acoustics and frequently set within environmental
landscapes. It is a music that belongs to performance and
visual location. Usually kept by the company for private
use, it is finally finding it’s way to public release.
Returning to the swirling music of the London Diorama,
these pieces open doors to magic territories and dream
frontiers. Subcontinent and Dreaming are new pieces that
have never had previous performance. Ocean of Dreams
(2003) is from the CD of the same title, originally written
for James Broughton’s Androgyne Journal (1996). Dream
Landscapes is also from the Ocean of Dreams CD.
Domaine I was created for the Gamelan Naga Mas
production Float Sound Objects (2005). Walking On The
Stars has been released on the Luminous CD, Create Music
(2000). Falling Up premiered at The Arches, Glasgow
(2002) for a Signy Jakobsdottir/Susan Worsfold
performance of the same title. Remember Moon and Men
with prose by poet Keith Jefferson completes this offering.
Jon Keliehor’s music for contemporary dance, ballet,
theatre and film has produced a unique catalogue of
percussion based composition. He has created works for
London Contemporary Dance Theatre, Royal Ballet, Lindsay
Kemp Theatre, Theatre of Lies, DanzaHoy in Caracas,
Gamelan Pacifica, Seattle, Pat Graney Dance, Gamelan
Naga Mas, Glasgow, Royston Maldoom and many others.
