Currently in Hobart for the exhibition Green, at the Plimsoll Gallery, Haines has said of his work for the show, “I want to reveal the ghostly and silent, contemplative discoveries made when composing with aroma molecules. I attempt to come to grips with the role of intuition and improvisation in this new medium, meditate on training the nose in the same way one’s hearing and seeing become more acute by intense close listening. I want to reveal a syntax that hasn’t appeared before outside of the closed world of perfumery, the accord, the quenching molecule, the Schiffs base reaction; incredible phenomena for the composer in terms of how this language of chemistry has an impact on the composition.”
