Organ (2004)
6 mins

This piece was commissioned by Symphony Hall Birmingham for premiere by Colm Carey on 10 May 2004.
I focused on three things while composing ORGAN. First the actual sound of the organ at full pelt with no holds barred, then the notion of butting up dense contrapuntal music against raw unison chordal blocks and finally the idea of placing a simple yet unforgiving two note bass line in different harmonic environments. I wanted to create an outburst of a piece with a sense of inevitability.
