Large Ensemble (1998)
CUD was written in 1988 for the Cleveland Youth Jazz Orchestra as part of a residency I undertook that year at the Dovecot Arts Centre in Stockton. It was subsequently recorded by the John Harle Band in 1993.
At the time I was interested in integrating aspects of so called ‘light’ music into a mathematically proportioned structure and exploring ways of placing ‘muzak’ in different environments. CUD is the result and lasts 15 minutes.
