barchan, (prounced bahkhan) is a kind of sand dune which can physically travel 100s of metres across the desert, changing the sand within it but always retaining its overall shape.
barchan is in a simple three-part structure and the trombone writing moves from being singular and stubborn to agile and meshed within the texture of the orchestra to forging a return to the simplicity of the beginning. I cut out the higher instruments of the orchestra to create a darker sound world and allow the trombone to sit on top.
