Product details

It's undeniable that a great bit of fiddling can bring the house down. When ASQ came to me with the idea of a piece destined to be used as an encore, I thought it was the perfect chance to invite them to get their fiddle on. Nose-scrunch Reel is an original tune which draws heavily from folk and traditional Irish music. When I lived in Melbourne in 2016, I used to busk outside the supermarket playing Irish Reels on my accordion. I was still getting my fingers around the buttons which meant that occasionally some rather surprising harmonies came out. Their combination of wrong and right made me scrunch my nose up with delight. In this piece, I lean into such crunchy chords, made all the more nose-scrunch-worthy by the grit and scrub of bow chops and volatile melodies. In the score, I gave a list of words which might describe a performance of this piece. It included: Raucous, Grinning, Cheeky and Slightly Psychedelic?
