I’ve recently been looking back at music I’ve written in the past few years; compositions that have (in my opinion) stood the test of time, but for whatever reason were never properly recorded. For interest and posterity, I’m sharing some of them here!
This work was written for Barega Sax Quartet, shortly after our debut album “Three Serpents” (of which I think this work sounds very reminiscent!) Dreamgravityflux never actually got performed – perhaps due to the precision required in rhythmic subdivision, which sounds fun but was extremely taxing to actually play! The work explores a floating and kaleidoscopic texture, clustered and angular harmonic sequences, structured in additive and subtractive rhythmic cells. This was a fun one to write as I considered all instruments in equal melodic roles – constantly overlapping and bouncing the melody to a different player.
…more new recordings to follow in the next few weeks!
