Instrumentation: Woodwinds and tape
Perhaps due to my background in engineering, I have always been fascinated by the use of phasing in music and how it can be employed in contemporary composions. Wayfarer begins with an ostinato in 7/4 before the strings enter with a 6/4 pattern set against this. On top of these lines are various repeated phrases of different lengths and meters which freely move in and out of phase with the opening ostinato, adding rhythmic and harmonic interest. As the piece builds, the soprano saxophone is set free before finally finding its way home.
Wayfarer is recorded on Electric Dawn (Sospiro Records).
