Impressions Of …

‘Impressions of …’ was a project composing music evoking memories of the places Rob had visited on his many travels. The project drew on Rob’s eclectic musical background and produced compositions for various instrumentations, built around the saxophone. It began in 2013 and continued for 6 years.

The following is a list of the pieces resulting from the project, many of which have subsequently been used in the music and spoken word show Que Pasa?:
