Gembird – new work for chamber ensemble

Introducing Gembird: 7! For 6, written in December 2012 in response to a call for scores by Kokoro and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra for their South West Composers Day. A return to instrumental ensemble writing, this is a sextet which organically weaves colour and texture around a skeleton of musical patterns, which happen to be inspired by the number 5040 (which mathematicians will know as 7x6x5x4x3x2x1, or 7! for short). It is scored for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and percussion (xylophone and tambourine, 1 player). Preview the score on the Portfolio page. Audio coming soon.
