for solo tenor saxophone

Impulse grapples with the nature of Tourette syndrome and the involuntary behaviour associated with this condition. Polarities of sudden against gradual, familiar against bizarre, and serene against startling are explored within this work. The tenor saxophone explores this complexity and reflects human unpredictability in a musical medium.

First performed on 12 May 2015 by Anthony Vouliotis at Melba Hall, Melbourne, Australia.
