Seven and Nine

By Michael Hugh Dixon

Regular price $50.00 Sale

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

To Fill His Emptiness

By Houston Dunleavy

Regular price $38.00 Sale

Bassoon and piano, c.7'00

The title comes from the musical processes that unfold in the work. The emptiness referred to is the held note at the end of the first phrase in the piano. The piece is an exploration as to how this held note, and its analogous moments later in the work, can be 'filled' with musical material. The objective of the pieces was to find as many ways as possible to fill these empty moments while still retaining musical characteristics. So, the process of filling the space is constantly evolving, constantly changing.
As the piece progress, these 'fillers' begin to take on a life of their own. They grow and be empty space recedes. The 'empty space' flows backward and forward between the bassoon and piano, almost like a tennis game!
