Programme Note:
This work is part of a collection of works in my 'Wired'' Series. Most of the works are for solo instrument. This work, however, is for wind quintet and optional accompaniment. The work is in three movements. The outer movements are high energy. The first movement tends to be minimalistic. The middle movement uses a walking bass-like line with a disjunct but lyric 'endless' chromatic melody. The last movement tends to be more free-flowing with longer active lines based on variations on a single pentatonic, or other scale with limited pitch material.The accompaniment to the wind quintet can be as simple as a woodblock (or even audience participation by clapping, or using small percussion instruments), to the use of a full wind ensemble, choir, or orchestra. There are three scores: one for unaccompanied quintet; one with a basic accompaniment showing piano, a Gli Altri Treble and Bass part, and woodblock; and a full score with parts for every instrument in a wind ensemble, choir, or orchestra. The accompaniment part is optional and highly flexible.

Instrumentation:

WIND QUINTET - 1 Flute, 1 Oboe, 1 Clarinet in Bb, 1 Horn in F, 1 Bassoon

ACCOMPANIMENT - The accompaniment part is optional and highly flexible. Here are some suggested instrumentations:
(1) No accompaniment.
