Clockwork is a Trumpet Octet that takes inspiration from Stravinsky. One of his favorite techniques was taking phrases and putting them out of sync with one other where one would loop in a different time than another. This reminded me of a clock and it’s multiple sized gears. Taking these two elements, clockwork is a piece that manipulates rhythm and phrasing to create momentum.
