C. Exigua

for trombone quartet

C. Exigua was commissioned by Slide Action trombone quartet and was premiered during Aldebrugh Festival 2022. The Cymothoa Exigua, AKA the tongue-eating louse, is a parasitic isopod infamous for entering the gills of fish, clawing off their tongue and attaching itself in its place. The C. Exigua lives amiably within the fish’s mouth as a fully functioning organ.
