Tenor Saxophone Index
I love to incorporate flavours of the music I enjoy, hopefully creating my own individual style and modern soundworld of composition. I have been lucky enough to have worked with many different artists and groups from across the UK resulting in many performances of my work.
Do get in touch if you have an idea for a future piece or project!
The Pervasive Force for Tenor Saxophone and Piano (2012)
Just two tones form the basis of this piece, these two influence, develop and spread into The Pervasive Force!
Written as a salute to the tenor saxophone the work is built around the interval between F# and Ab exploring different uses of the material while demonstrating the full and rich tone of the tenor.
Idle Compulsion Chamber Concerto for Solo Trombone, Strings & Percussion (2011)
Written for Alastair Burrows. The piece at heart its made up of interweaved chords and melodic lines creating an ever changing musical landscape with the trombone taking charge. The structure of the piece is dictated by its title referring to the lack of motion at the start to the pulsating rhythmic end.
Haze for Saxophone Quartet SSAB/SATB (2011)
Written for the Astraeus Saxophone Quartet. The piece explores a range of textures, colours and timbres from both the traditional and alternative line-up of saxophone quartet.
Haze represents the shifting obscurity of perception.
Unstable Molecules for Set Up & Contemporary Ensemble (2010)
Written for percussionist Robin Eggers. The work is based on the melding of classical percussion and improvisation. The piece contains three main flavours taken from classical, free improv and jazz, which has been formulated into a structure with space for the performers to improvise and experiment within, leading to a overall feel of spontaneity.
