Program Notes

Morse Code Pop uses a syncopated theme that mimics the sound of a morse code signal. The composer is not fluent in morse code, however, so any specific messages that may result from the motivic material are not intended. Many thanks to Valerie Vidal and Elizabeth Owsijuk for their musical talents, enthusiasm and dedication in preparing this work for its premiere.

- Program Note by composer

Morse Code Pop is a upbeat and energetic work with a syncopated theme that mimics the sound of a Morse code signal. Originally composed as a duet for alto and baritone saxophone for Valerie Vidal and Elizabeth Owsijuk in 2005, the work was subsequently arranged for soprano and alto saxophone duo, at the request of Elizabeth Rosinbum and Jessica Voigt for a performance at the 2015 World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, and for saxophone quartet at the request of Dan Gelok, the saxophone professor at the University of Houston, Moore's School of Music for the 2016 Moorse Wind Ensemble concert at the Texas Music Educators Association Convention.
