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.
