New Commission: Polish Library Association

I’m super excited to announce that the Polish Library Association will be commissioning a new multimedia string quartet from me to celebrate the centennial anniversary of Poland’s independence!

The piece will feature projected images chosen with help from the PLA and will be performed by the Delgani Quartet later this year.

More details to come.

New Composition: Child Of The Sun

On New Year’s Day I finished a piece that I began last September; a lullaby for my daughter. Commissioned by the Seen/Heard Trio, it’s scored for Mezzo-soprano, flute, and harp, andtitled Child Of The Sun, and features a poem written by my wife, Tri’ah.

This piece is a love note, in the purest sense, to our daughter Vedavearre; it’s our welcoming-into-the world to her. It’s also first extended foray into writing for voice and harp, so it was a new and exciting frontier for me. I’m very pleased with the results thus far, though no doubt there will be a lot of refinement as I work with the ensemble once I get the finalized score sent to them (I’m still getting it copied into Finale.)

I’ll be sharing more news about the new trio as it progresses!
