Temporal Sweetness Profile
for bassoon
Composed for Jack Cremer
First performance: 17 Nov 2021

Performed at the ANAM Set Festival by
Jack Cremer (bassoon)

Program note:
Temporal Sweetness Profile is a study caught between three exploratory parameters: highs and lows, of softs and louds, and fast and slow vibrations. The work’s sole purpose is a continual attempt to bridge two different worlds of register and dynamic, and oscillation.
