Roundabout (for solo violin, 2002) is a piece characterised by a playful, yet nervous energy. The title describes the manner in which the bars and phrases of music frequently “loop-the-loop” before taking off in a new direction. When composing the piece, I made use of a variety of violin performance techniques such as rapid-fire bowing of semiquavers and the alternating of bowed notes with left hand pizzicato. This brings a percussive vigour and a colourful mix of timbres to the narrative of the work.
