Product details

Lament was written in response to the death of a friend.

In this piece I wanted to spin a long line of wordless lamentation. I was aiming to explore what one could say within quite strict limitations: spinning out a few notes at a time; twisting and turning; keeping up a sense of momentum and a sense of progression. Underneath, the bleak intervals of 4ths and 5ths at cadence points are used to underpin the line, but also to unsettle it with uneasy independent movement.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (6p. -- A4 (portrait))
