‘Flight Mode” was composed in the spring of 2012.
The idea for the piece came from a chance remark made by a colleague during a recording session, with reference to a mobile phone my addled brain interpreted the words in a musical sense, and thus a new mode, ”flight mode”, was born. I imagined the flight taking off from somewhere in the eastern Mediterranean and landing perhaps in one of the Scandinavian countries however this must be by some form of flight yet to be discovered since the piece lasts a mere 4 minutes. The mode includes certain quarter tone pitches, which recur throughout the piece and for which a fingering chart is supplied. Like ”Holiday Postcards”, ”Flight Mode” was written for the inspiring saxophonist. Sarah Markham and has been performed in London, Huddersfield and Aulnay-Sous-Bois.
