Waltz 2 by Gary Carpenter published on 2013/12/10 22:59:16 +0000 for brass quintet Mardi Brass - from the upcoming CD 'Something Blue'. Cyanography is a photographic process which blue-washes the image. One of the loveliest and most intriguing examples of this technique is an artwork called 'The Sun The Moon' by Michal Martychowiec and this provided the impetus for these two little waltzes. I am undecided which one is the sun and which the moon but they are complimentary and can be heard as obverse images of each other. I think of them as a nod towards Erik Satie and Ron Grainer, two composers of whom I am particularly fond!
