Manqué (2020)

for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, and 2 bassoons 

"'Going through the motions' is a phrase more often associated with swimming near a sewage outlet, but it's more or less what I do, and with similar results."

                                                                                            - Ian Cugley

 

 

Manqué is a homage to the music of Ian Cugley, specifically his 1965 piece 'Pan the Lake: (Metamorphosis of a Theme by Peter Sculthorpe)'.

It was written as a transitioning phase between Cugley's influences like Webern and Sculthorpe and the amorphous meandering aftermath of his own music.
