Additional Information

In this piece, the violin represents a tired, slightly grumpy old man who switches on his TV set and comments on - even sometimes ignores - what he sees.

The clarinet represents two distinct characters on the TV, one in the lower register of the instrument, one in the higher. The former is a rather sophisticated news presenter, the latter a somewhat zealous reporter.

​Complete with references to the U. S. national anthem and The News at Ten, this piece represents a transition form my earlier style to a more free, colourful style of composition. Although still atonal it is the first time I reference outside musics and was one of the first steps I took on my journey away from the restrictions of hard modernism. It gained me my Masters from Goldsmith's.
