It's got a bassoon and a bass clarinet, what more could you want? Probably a lot, but this is all I got.

This is a beauty, a perfect miniature.  Good to see you back in the saddle!

A short one. I haven't decided how to release this yet so there are no downloads. Possibly it will end up as part of a loosely related series of similarly titled works.

It's always interesting to hear what you come up with, I can imagine a slow gestural dance to this one.

Thanks guys. Sorry for the delayed response, I held off posting here because I was expecting to have this next one ready to go sooner, but here it is now.

This is not part of the potential series (no news yet!) I mentioned earlier, rather an offshoot of Offering. I really like the way this ensemble sounds and I wanted to do at least one more thing with it before moving on to something else.

I hope that you don't stop using this ensemble now, as it really has potential for something larger than the two pieces you've produced so far. Keep it up!

Oh, don't worry, there's more to come, I'm just not sure what it is yet. At the moment I have another project for a different ensemble I'm eager to get started with, I've been planning stuff for it for a while, but it's not quite there yet.

Well well, my good sirs and madams, it is time for more of this, whatever this is! In fact, "this" is a substantial new piece called To the Wild and Hidden Spaces, written for a sixteen piece ensemble consisting of winds, brass, strings, keyboards, synthesisers, and mallets.

Liner notes featuring a moderately detailed essay on the composition can be found in the download versions, available free of charge (as ever) in mp3 and FLAC if you are so inclined.

Thanking you kindly, and in advance, for your attention.

The influence from Eastern music genres such as Gagaku blends into your style wonderfully, and this music has a wider sense of space than I've heard in your earlier work. I love both the subtle play of timbres and the way the melodic lines have become ever more distinctive while remaining within your own idiom. Beautiful.

Thank you so much! I'm really glad you like it.

I meant to tell you, Dan, that before the contest's starting gun, when I was turning general musical notions, the models I was keeping in view were your own pieces, and Zappa's (e.g) "Igor's Boogie, Phases 1 & 2" and "Project X"

An honour, on both counts. Thanks. Wishing you the best of luck!
