The composition of the 8-channel electro-acoustic work Encounters in the Republic of Heaven is discussed in some detail; how the initial poetic and technical impetus for the work led to the defining and creation of an appropriate form to combine storytelling and sonic organisation; the problems and practicalities of recording, selecting and editing appropriate source materials; and the sound-processing and musical organisation of the materials.
