fivebyfive

An older piece of mine, but one near and dear to my heart, has been selected by fivebyfive for their upcoming concert on April 15th. I wrote its first iteration under my professor Marti Epstein as an exercise in minimalism and indeterminacy. After a few years, I came back to the piece, expanded it, and changed it to flexible instrumentation.

For this concert, I will add another part (from piano + 3 musicians to piano + 4) to accommodate fivebyfive’s ensemble size. The evolution and flexibility of this piece since its creation inspire me to keep open/flexible instrumentation in my arsenal. I’ve never had the piece performed by the same set of instruments more than once, and each performance brings something new to my ears. I look forward to hearing fivebyfive’s interpretation next month.
