Five Landscapes (pierrot ensemble)

There are two versions of this piece. It was originally composed in 2014 for wind ensemble, and arranged for Pierrot ensemble (flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, and percussion). The piece presents a series of five musical landscapes. Each one is conceived as a distinct, largely non-developmental soundworld for the listener to observe and inhabit for a short time. Like the natural world, the piece consists in part of gradual processes combining to create larger features that nonetheless display a sense of organicism. You can view the score of the pierrot ensemble version, and listen to a recording by Toni-Ann Sanford, Karen MacDonald, Sarah McCabe, India Gailey, Ashton Wisener, and Brydone Charlton.
