    Lament - to the Unknown - Andrew Stevenson

    Lament ? to the Unknown was written in the memory of Rob Southwick, who passed away in Easter 2012. Rob was a talented musician who worked with many local music and drama groups around Doncaster; this piece pays homage to the immense musicianship and talent of Rob.The piece itself is very simple, both rhythmically and technically. The tempo is slow and calm, representing a reflective hymn. The basis of the piece is built on dissonant chords and atmospheric percussion which creates a wonderful soundscape of colour. The falling fourths of the distant trumpet calls emulate feelings of sadness and mourning and the somewhat disjointed melodies give the piece a mysterious sound. The piece grows to an emotional climax before settling down for a chilling end.
