Social Media Suite

Each of the movements is loosely inspired by elements of social media, the internet and electronic communication in general, though purely musical argument always takes precedence:

1. En Face

2. Les Oiseaux

3. The Dark Web


A fun, creative take on Social Media in the current world…. great use of extended technique. Excellent development of musical ideas. Unique and driving harmonies…a really creative and colorful work.

From the adjudication in the 2019 Bassoon Chamber Music Composition Competition, in which the work was given an honourable mention


4 bassoons (player 4 also contrabassoon)
