On the beach
For Choir a cappella (2016), 3' - 5' mins.
Voicing: 6 or more voices
On the beach was written for COMA Singers and their director Janet Oates. It is in open score, allowing for performance by any group of six or more singers. The voices ebb and flow in pairs or in threes before setting up a gently pulsating rhythmic soundbed 'in under over'. Fragments of melody shine through over the rippling rhythms. The piece creates a stillness, with constant movement under the surface.
