Saturday was one of my first film scores. It was written in a day for a 'live' animation being created in Newcastle by animator Leo Martyn.

The film was a comic look at routine and how people fall into daily patterns that are hard to break. I wanted the music to be cyclical to reflect these patterns, so the work is structured around a sequence of bars: 1 - 12 - 123 - 1234 etc. up to 12. The abrupt change in pace towards the end of this extract was dictated by the pacing of the film.

I later arranged Saturday for double string quartet (called twelve), and it was chosen for a CD project of works for string ensembles by young composers.

The Saturday score is entirely MIDI-generated, using marimba, vibraphone, piano and string sounds
