Rehearsals going well for my new piece ‘Escapement’. Short clip from today below:
New score (.pdf , 25mb) for eight voices parametrically controlled with noise-terrain amplitude envelopes.
Just finished the first rehearsal of my new piece, Escapement with the LSTwo ensemble. Extremely slow and quiet.
The score for Vermilion Sands is now online here (.pdf, 13.5mb).
for flute, violin, violoncello and percussion.

As many of you know, the inimitable Home Normal have released a little album of mine from the early Ithaca Trio vaults. Recorded in early 2009, this is radically different from last year’s New Music from the Delta Quadrant on Hibernate.
