An evening of sustained sounds and silence over long durations. This new evening length work ‘dreams of willows and thresholds’ for viola and double bass uses the harmonic series a foundational element of its structure. The music is concerned with implementing rational structures that correspond to actual phenomenon found (observed) in natural (actual) sounds in search for new (lost) shapes , places , and resonant fluctuations that are often overlooked . . This interaction with tone is meant to quiet and sober the mind; both rational structure and intuitive process . .
The music will be presented in 2 parts .
willows – viola / double bass
thresholds – viola / double bass
