Commissioned by: New Music on the Point and the Robert Black Foundation for their 2020 commissioning program.
Duration: ca. 4 min
Scree Scramble was commissioned by the Robert Black Foundation in tandem with New Music on the Point and bassist James Sullivan. “Scree” refers to loose eroded rocks on the side of a mountain, and “scrambling” is hiking/climbing using your hands and feet. This
piece reflects a perilous journey on the rocks up to the top of a mountain.
