The fifth article in a series on pieces for young players from the 1960s and 70s

Curated by Composer, Sound artist and Musician, Duncan Chapman.

"Journey pieces" are one way of creating a sense of movement and continuity. Howard Skempton's Caves is a good example of this.

"Wander along the path between the caves at your own speed, pausing within the caves for an indefinite period".

John Paynter's Fog is described as a "sound picture for an average class of any age". The score is a mixture of conventional and new notations and includes elements of material devised by the performers.
