"Smudge was written for Quirk Saxophone Quartet and their performance at the World Saxophone Congress in Zagreb, Croatia. As in much of my work, the relentless groove and hooks are present almost all the way through this work, giving way briefly to a calmer middle section that is dominated by a soprano melody. The use of extended techniques throughout should always be a positive addition to the textures created. If there is a similar sound or a sound that is better suited to a group’s interpretation they should always be used over ones that are marked. If there are any questions about the extended techniques I would be more than happy to answer them personally – contact me through my website – www.chrisjolly.com." - C. Jolly, March 2018
