Composed 2021-2022 in New Hampshire and Missouri.
Commissioned by Don-Paul Kahl. Score available for purchase.
Resistance is the transformation of a complex sound to an ever-evolving melodic fury.
This melodic material eventually devolves and mutates with the passing of quarter tones
and disparate slap sounds. These points are not ambiguous or solitary however;
they lead to structured resonance in returning motives that themselves evolve.
This process goes to the fore until the entire structure topples on its
head and breaks bringing nearly all elements to a brilliant
melange of sound and color. (Program note by Don-Paul Kahl)
