The title Bend/Boogie/Break describes the character of three recurring ideas in the work:
- Bend refers to the use of glissandi and pitch bends (particularly strings)
- Boogie refers to the underlying funk bass
- Break: as in, to break apart or a 'breakdown' section (perhaps a nod to metal rhythms!)
Inspiration is drawn from post-rock, funk, and honky-tonk piano, as well as the overarching idea of warping vinyl and things 'going wrong' - perhaps bent out of shape, broken, or not quite right.
Instrumentation: Flute, clarinet/bass clarinet, violin, cello, percussion, piano.
Duration: 11 min.
Written for: Ensemble Offspring
Commission note: Commissioned by Ensemble Offspring.. Commissioned by and written for Ensemble Offspring with the generous support of Penny Le Couteur and Greg Dickson
