The Bass Place

Brendan Magill

Grade 7, Harwood Union Middle/High School, Duxbury VT

"This song is a trio for bass, bass clarinet, and flute. It has four sections, all with different, syncopated rhythms. This piece is supposed to feel like it is not going anywhere, it is staying right in the same place. That place is the bass place, hence the title. It gets in a very rhythmical groove, changes rhythms a few times, and then repeats the same rhythm it started with. This is my second composition, the first of which was a duet for bassoon and English horn."
