Jackpot – New Composition Inspired by a Visit to a Casino

It is odd to imagine that a quick stroll through a casino would become an inspiration for a new composition for a chamber group, yet the surround-sound cacophony of blips, clicks, and pings unlocked the desire to play with sound in a carefree and joyful way. Jackpot is a rush of excitement developing into an adrenaline high. Stylistically centered in minimalism, it alludes to jazz, but discerning listeners might detect elements of 1970s disco era. Jackpot is scored for Violin, Cello, Bass Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone, Piano, and Marimba. Find out more about the music here: http://www.dosiamckay.com/music/jackpot.shtml
