In the spirit of recycling, Timepiece uses music of the past in new ways. The three-note motif that pervades the work is a transcription of a bellbird song (previously used in my piece Bush Telegraph). I also quote from Mahler, The Beatles, and a famous clock tune.
Timepiece is a clarinet quartet, composed for The Committee's 'Clock Works' concert in Auckland University's Clocktower. In a minimalistic style, it includes hocketing, spatial effects, birdsong, and musical quotation.
