Two Vignettes on Transition (2008)

  • Instrumentation: orchestra
  • Duration: 12’00

Program Notes

This piece deals with my interest in both transitional musical materials and the transitive nature of sound itself, which disappears almost as soon as it is created. I have conceived the form of the piece as an exploration of transition, presenting numerous sounds in motion as they come into and out of existence in time, and showing them from several perspectives so as to allow the effects of time and transition to change the very nature of the sounds and suggest new meanings.
