Some members might remember this. It was offered for a competition here c 3 years ago when I was a newcomwer- won nothing, not even a few marks for orchestration but perhaps giving it a separate airing might give it a chance. It was called The Sun Machine at the time.
Maybe it was because it used a Haitian folk tune. I had this idea of a little train ride from Port au Prince to Jacmel but the max duration had to be 3 minutes. Of course such a ride would take a lot longer and Haiti has no railways but I loved the tune.
It's written for a chanber orchestra, one of several tropical pieces in lighter vein, far different from the modern stuff I usually write. The score was prepared this year.
Comments are always gratefully received but as this is fairly trivial I'd understand it it passes without comment.
