Solo bassoon with horn ensemble backing track, c.5'50

Seven and Nine has the form of Recitative and Aria for solo bassoon with a backing track of 6 pre-recorded horn parts. It was premiered by Ben Hoadley at the Sydney MicroFest 4 in 2022. There are harmonies using the 7th harmonics of the overtone series. (7-limit harmonies in just intonation music theory). These are both above and below standard tuning by 31 cents (compared to a standard semitone of 100 cents).   The notation supports the sound of the horn harmonies so are reasonably straightforward for the bassoon soloist to hear.

Composed 2022
