Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Written in memory of my friend and teacher, Steve Martland, Scattered Ground has a double meaning that has associations with both the scattering of ashes and with the ground bass musical technique.
    Despite its memorial nature, the piece is predominantly happy and upbeat. It opens with a series of static chords (which also act as the ground around which the music develops) before progressing on to an animated section featuring rhythmic and harmonic unison; a series of short arpeggios over the bass line; and an ecstatic section which precedes a reprise of the opening material and a sudden close.
