Curios

(i) Remember Me
(ii) Bundeena Drive
(iii) 111
(iv) Screen

This work is a collection of four short musical "curiosities" that refer in different ways to the work of other composers. "Remember Me" is a highly compressed and condensed tribute to Dido's famous lament from Henry Purcell's "Dido and Aneas". "Bundeena Drive" is dedicated to Sydney composer Greg Schiemer whose fixation with number sequences and methodicality has always been a source of wonder. At the time this movement was written, Greg was living at number 123, Bundeena Drive. "111" was inspired by the dramatic gestures of Beethoven's Piano Sonata, opus No. 111. In the finale movement, "Screen", a twelve-bar jazz blues is condensed into 24 short quavers and repeated continuously with varying accentuation.
