In January 2015, I was in Paris to compose a work for the saxophonist Daniel Kientzy. It was for contrabass saxophone and six trombones and it became known as Lignes de faille (Fault lines). The title became a reflection of my stay for I happened to be travelling in the metro directly underneath as the atrocity was taking place at the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo.
The new work Entre les lignes (Between the lines) was composed once back in the relative safety of Sydney but there is a remnance of the despair that one feels when faced with such an unimaginable act of misanthropy.
Technically, the work is quiet and sombre, with a two-note motif permeating a series of irregular chord groupings. The only light comes with a final sustained high violin melody which might be searching for solace.
Instrumentation: String orchestra.
Duration: 4 min.
