studying shrapnel (2021)
any valved brass instrument
c. 3 minutes
Joel Kirk, flugelhorn
This short piece can be played on any valved brass instrument. It is entirely comprised of percussive fragments which I discovered whilst improvising on my own instrument - the flugelhorn. Following a generally additive structure, these small pieces of debris are continually repeated and re-permutated in different combinations through the piece.
Most of my scores are available for perusal in full. If you would like parts and/or printed copies, please get in touch via my contacts page!
