Northwestern Sketches was written in the weeks before Benjamin Perrier’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.
