A series of metallic gears.


for saxophone quartet

This composition evokes a self-sustained, machine-like landscape, complete with moving parts and circuitry. It also reflects on how this machine’s experience of work may relate to very human experiences of life, drawing connections between rigid technological processes and fluid human emotions and wondering if there may be space for an in-between.

"Industriana" was composed for the 2019–2020 Mount Allison Saxophone Quartet. The intended premiere was sadly cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was then premiered by the 2021–2022 Quartet on April 5, 2022.
