Work Overview

Evolving over a number of years Perverse Exit Songs is a collection of three raw and quirky saxophone quartet pieces tied together with recurring motives, a shared sense of energy and a love of folk-like tunes with twisted accompaniments.

Perverse Exit Songs is an homage to the music of Australia's most internationally reknowned composer, Percy Aldridge Grainger. His manipulation of traditional English folk songs has inspired many a future composer to pervert songs in a similar fashion.
