“…so anyway, I sez to Mabel, I sez…” takes its title from an early episode of The Simpsons, and has a gossipy, chattering nature. The players are given a very challenging task in this movement in that they are asked to work together as if they were one player to create a complex texture over which each gets a chance to have a soloistic moment. Half way through, the entire opening section returns, but this time it’s backwards.

If the instrumentation of this work isn’t quite what you are looking for, let’s discuss the creation of a new version of this work that will meet your needs. You may be surprised at how easy this is to do. Contact me at jason@jasonbarabba.com
