Octoboogy - with live octopus
My octatonic boogie woogie Octoboogy has been dusted down and re-instrumented, so the solo parts are now played by flute and jazz guitar. That sounds much better than the old trumpet version and will, I hope, be performed live some time...Score and parts available on Load.CD. By way of a bonus, it now has a real octopus accompanying it, at least in this video:

Iris Clarinet Quartet
This brilliant Japanese clarinet quartet has performed some of my music already and I am greatly looking forward to more performances by them. You can hear them play my "Tants Fraylachs" and "Five times table" on http://www.dwsolo.com/serif/japanesequartet.html As you can hear, their ability to interpret the Klezmer feel of Tants Fraylachs is brilliant and the jolly glissandi of Five times table are beautiful and humorous. Their own blog-site (in Japanese) is at http://iris-clarinet.com/
