About

The formula for realising this work:

  • take existing quartet (2010)
  • delete guitar and cello parts
  • rearrange and pare down surviving flute and clarinet parts
  • add bass trombone part

Why?

  • I've been interested in continuous recontextualisation of materials (transformed or unchanged) within single works for some time now; if I rip entire chunks from an existing piece and use them to build something else, to what extent is the resulting work new, and to what extent is it related? - and can this relatedness even be detected? Furthermore, is composing in my usual mode as dependent on such high levels of compositional struggle as I had previously held it to be?
  • but primarily: this is the first work written since the arrival of my son about a year ago; time for composition remains limited and rapid solutions must be found
