These miniatures resulted from sketches I wrote for horn quartet in 2008. I treated these movements as stylistic exercises focusing on the darker gloomy sound of the horn rather than the bright and brassy quality of the instrument. To convey the emotions of these sketches, I placed an emoticon above each movement.
