R Stop Seven[listen]
For vocal acrobatics, contrabass flute, alto recorder, trumpet, and piano. Inspired by frustration with the amount of time spent on the New York City subway system. Commissioned and premiered by Hexnut and The Walden School. June 2010.
For wind quintet. A set of paramter studies. In each movement I chose parameters to fix, parameters to contrast, and a shape to use for the changing parameters. The first and fifth movements are performed standing around the audience (they're actually moving around in the fifth). Much of the work is structured improvisation with tightly controlled parameters and guidelines. Premiered by Aeros Quintet, May 2010.
