    Date of Composition: March 14, 2021

    History: I composed this piece for the Commonwealth International Composition Award, from December 2020 to March 2021. The guidelines were to compose a piece for mixed ensemble, using one of a handful of pre-selected poems. I chose "Oceania" by the New Zealand-Tongan poet, Karlo Mila, because I felt this had the most potential for word-painting. This piece won the Young Adjudicators' Award at the Awards Ceremony later in 2021.

    Description: This piece is meant to evoke the ocean in all its forms, both wild and capricious, and calm and serene. I tried to capture this by using lots of tone colours, including different types of clarinets, extended techniques on cello, and many different percussion instruments, in order to cover the whole breadth of sounds I wanted to convey.

    (from the composer's own words)

    Please take note that the audio AND sheet music ARE NOT mine. Feel free to change the video quality to a minimum of 480p for the best watching experience.

Excellent ensemble and the clarinetist is really impressive! It is not easy to switch from bass to Eb and back and keep them both in tune. I had a panic attack just reading the score.

Dude, you are mega talented! To be composing music of this standard at such a young age is such a genuine rarity, so it’s amazing to hear a work like this composed by a young person that’s not only been performed live but has also won a competition too. For me, you sit up there with other child prodigies like Mozart and Saint-Saëns, and you absolutely deserve all the praise you can for this. Keep up the amazing work, Devon!

What is the purpose of the first 40 seconds? After 40 seconds, that passage does not appear.

The fact that this was composed by a 15 years old is amusing. Incredible work.
