the resonance after... (2008)

for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, percussion, and piano

9 min

the resonance after... was composed for the new music ensemble eighth blackbird and supported by a summer research fellowship awarded by the University of Richmond. The piece exploits the resonance that is left after a sharp attack. The gradual harmonic and timbral unfolding of this resonance heard in the opening creates a slowly evolving and quiet musical landscape that encourages introspection.
