VARIATION(S)

~ for solo piano


variation(s) was composed for a workshop with Mark Knoop in March 2017 and was reworked in light of questions and comments raised during the session. It was later performed in its revised version by George Murrell.

The piece borrows material from J.S. Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” and subjects it to a number of transformations using a “windowing” system inspired by Turtle Quest, a puzzle book I was briefly obsessed with as a child.
