Northwestern Sketches was written in the weeks before Benjamin Perrierâ€™s 1996 Christmas vacation in Thunder Bay which is located in Northwestern Ontario. His excitement for the upcoming trip greatly contributed to this composition. Northwestern Sketches is scored for trombone quartet, a medium which the composer feels does not receive enough attention. This work uses a combination of hexachords and whole tone scales to keep it fresh and exciting.
