Fugue for Unisons and Octaves - (2013)    

for piano


 

The notion of little fugues based on a number multiplied in concept across several features of the form comes to the octave, eight reflected in the time signature of 8/8, and the subject built around unison repetitions and octave leaps. Wholly tonal and merely outlining the tonic triad, this subject roams though a number of domains with only slight contrapuntal voices, many parallel triads, essentially accompanying the distinctive melody.
