Mike Dale's Building Blocks. A Saxophone Octet scored for SSAATTBB.

This piece is melodic and atmospheric, with a rippling effect in the backing parts. Beginning with a quiet introduction, the soprano soars above the other instruments. The next section goes through many key changes, and coupled with the movement in the lower instruments, gives a constant feel of change, with the rest of the group playing rich harmonies above. The melody at this point is passed between the sopranos and altos, almost conversationally. The next section starts with the tenors and baritones setting up a new louder rhythm for four bars, before the rest of the group join in with a completely new section. It finishes with a paraphrase of the introduction.
