Wind Quintet

7'30''

Receiving second place in Arcadia Winds' 2018 Wind Quintet competition, this piece is an exciting modern twist on a theme and variations. Arcadia Winds has said, "We all loved how Ben took a simple idea and developed it with imagination and flair.” Subtitled 'Three Variations on a Three-Note Cell', this piece explores three different sound worlds, all of which feature quirky rhythms and intricate melodic interplay.

Received second place in Arcadia Winds' Composition Competition. Premiered by the Icarus Chamber Project on their 2019 regional NSW tour.
