SKYLINES for saxophone quartet (2013) - 9 min.
Commissioned by the Iridium Quartet
From resplendent alpine mountain ranges to urban concrete jungles, this piece takes as its inspiration the infinite variety of design created by earth meeting the sky. At first linear and then becoming multidimensional, these designs are further enhanced by changes in light and season.
The variation in mood and color of such phenomena are represented musically through broad melodies supported by tight rhythmic canons and consonant pandiatonic passages juxtaposed with those employing the dissonant diminished scale.
