Composition Diary

Juncture II, New revisiting the Old

...In early 2013 I started sketching a new piano piece. In some senses it was a return to an earlier style of construction; a cellular based compositional model, focused on making the most use of extremely constrained harmonic, and thus melodic, material. By this stage I had already begun my doctorate and was interest in Maximal pitch content, as opposed to Minimal. However, the sketch was what it was. I produced about fifteen bars, set it aside to focus on other projects, and it was left untouched.
