foraging for sounds
July 15, 2012 - composition / news / performing
I’ve been in St Andrews for a couple of days for the World Saxophone Congress to hear the new piece for eight saxophones that was commissioned by RICO, the reed manufacturer. I had some time on Saturday, so went for a long walk along the beach next to the Old Course. Apart from being adopted by a Labrador who wanted me to throw his ball, I found a lot of interesting junk washed up by the sea. It was good timing as I needed some objects for the concert at Kings Place with Parkinson Saunders on Sunday. The picture shows some of the stuff I found, although I had to chuck the anenome as it was beginning to smell fairly badly. Not sure that would be a good thing to put in my suitcase.
