"Magrat" from Monstrous Productions Theatre Companies "Witches Abroad" (2015) for clarinet, tuba and guitar.
Taking the Pratchett novel as it's inspiration, this piece looks to depict the shadow-wrapped, cumbersome and humourous world within which the witches dwell. Given the specification to write specifically for three instruments, a clear relation between each instrument and a respective witch became quickly apparent, which I definitely had in mind while writing each of the parts!
This score was specifically written as incidentally music for the performances, played before the play began and during the interval, and performed live throughout the show's run.
