Program Notes

Commissioned by Music11 Festival

Premiered: June 29, 2011. Deidre Huckaby and Kerrith Livengood, flutes. Derek Tywoniuk and Katy La Favre, percussion. Lisa Kaplan, piano. Music11 Festival. Blonay, Switzerland

In this piece the ensemble presents two different types of music simultaneously. The first is beautiful and sensuous; a slowly moving harmonic progression endlessly cycling. The second is percussive and rhythmic, full of contrasts; a dramatic interplay of different sounds. These two different feelings co-exist throughout Chasm, sometimes meeting, but for the most part content to evolve independently.
