Clockwork – a simple piece for one or more saxophones

‘Somewhere, distant, the ancient mechanism of an old clock can only just be heard’.

This piece portrays a clockwork mechanism, relying on the performer/s creating an almost inaudible texture of soft sounds. It is most effective performed by an ensemble, as a greater number of saxophonists equals more mechanical complexity. It can be performed by any member or combination of the saxophone family.
