The Colours of Memory explores various contrapuntal variations based on the flute's opening two bar pattern (bars 7 & 8). This two bar pattern, with its implied syncopation, was accessed from a Garage Band archive of instrumental audio samples. As well as utilising invertible and retrograde counterpoint, the work capitalises on implied counterpoint as a result of the timbral interplay with the other instruments.
Instrumentation: Flute, oboe, soprano saxophone, clarinet in B flat, bassoon, French horn, vibraphone, piano, drum kit (acoustic or sampled), strings (no double basses), electric bass guitar.
Duration: 6 min.
- In the form/style of: Post-minimalism
