Invention - An Ascent is centered around two of the carrilon's most salient features: its wide dynamic range and the complexity of its resonance. These two characteristics appeared to be quite suitable to create a kaleidoscopic texture, in which different pitches are repeated at different volumes and, occasionally, in different locations of the instrument. The result is a floating fog of sound out of which moments of songlike melody emerge. Invention is dedicated to Joey Brink with gratefulness and admiration. CLICK HERE FOR A SCORE SAMPLE
