Work Overview

When writing this piece I was interested in exploring the different techniques I could use to convey humour, joy and silly fun. The techniques I used include: a moderately fast tempo, tonal harmony and thematic material, exaggerated expression, frequent changes in dynamics, tempo and metric pulse, staccato and pizzicato passages, and lots of ornamentation using slow and fast glissandos, harmonics, grace notes, trills and variation in vibrato. The piece is largely comprised of several different variations on similar motives or themes. Omoshiroi is a Japanese title meaning: interesting, funny and fun.
