Pavane For A Broken Wubby

This piece was written in response to Disquiet Junto #285. The idea was to select three barcodes and write music based on their contents.

I selected barcodes from the three ingredients of my typical breakfast – Shredded Wheat (big biscuit), milk and sugar. From the barcodes I extracted the numbers, which I had represent notes (I did end up changing two of the 36 notes so that it would make more sense). Each barcode is a voice in this string trio, with the barcode for the Shredded Wheat earning the theme.

I wrote this in response to the demise of my granddaughter’s pacifier, which was a sad but necessary experience in her evolution.

This piece is written for violin, viola and cello.
