oboe oboe oboe oboe oboe oboe oboe oboe oboe oboe by DAVID BRUCE

Description

This piece is a fun and melodic exploration of an unusual cross-rhythm - 13 against 21. The 13 forms melodic lines that are passed around the ensemble, while the 21, essentially 3 bars of 7/8 forms looping staccato accompaniments. Eventually the looping condenses and intensifies until all the oboes are sucked into a final vortex.

for 10 Oboes

This piece is a fun and melodic exploration of cross-rhythms. It's formed of an unusual 13 against 21 cross-rhythm, the 13 formed of melodic lines which get passed around the ensemble, and the 21, essentially 3 bars of 7/8 which cycle in dancing staccato accompaniments. Towards the end of the piece the looping condenses and intensifies and all the oboes get sucked into a final vortex.
