About the work

The Postcard Music consists of a series of pieces written to be printed on a standard size postcard. There were published by the Forum London Composers’ Group. The piece was given its premiere at the British Music Information Centre at a concert of pieces by members of Forum on May 12th 1998.

Technical notes

One of the ‘Postcard Pieces’, players select their own clef or transposition, and play the series of repeated section, which contain some more complex rhythms. Any number of players may take part, but if there are more than a handful of players a conductor is likely to be necessary.
