June Emerson: Alto saxophone, Bass clarinet and piano version


A few words from Chris Jolly:

TRIp was originally written in 2011 for Reed Play; a trio of alto saxophone, bass clarinet and piano. The piece was re-worked in 2012 for the World Saxophone Congress in St Andrews with the bass clarinet part altered for baritone saxophone and a new middle section added.

TRIp is based on a 2 bar groove which emerges from a driving and unstable opening which incorporates extended techniques. The contrasting middle section looses all sense of time with a repeated 13 beat melody in the alto and lilting chords from the piano. The final section sees the return of the 2 bar groove that we first heard at the beginning, this time much more settled.
