  • OMP008 Benjamin Thorn Blue Wombat

    The Blue Wombat burrows away energetically in 7/8-time, the recorder's grouping mostly at variance with the piano's, the latter making much use of the interval of a second.  There is a recuperative middle section, a simple stepwise recorder melody over a pedal A in the piano.  Then the activity resumes, ending with a 16-bar stretch of continuous multiphonics from the recorder.   The solo part is marked 'F at the outset and stays loud, while the piano is marked 'mf' or 'mp; and explores various tessituras.  The composer distils a most unusual tonal picture from his chosen means.  The wombat's excavations take about two-and-a quarter minutes.
