Homage (2005/rev. 2009)

for bass trombone and 6-valve F Tuba

Through means of a cyclic tuning process the bass trombone and tuba move gradually upwards. The title refers both to this ascending motion and to the English experimental music scene of the 1960s and 1970s, to which the piece refers stylistically.
