Block title


This piece was originally sketched – as the main title suggests – as a tribute to a friend who had recently met an untimely end. Time has passed though, and while the friend is still missed, the material has transformed, like fallen wood in the forest, acting as habitat for moths, beetles, and more, reflecting decay, transformation, and growth. Performed here by Violist Jonathan Newmark, Cellist Elizabeth Skola Davis, and myself on bass, this piece was choreographed by Adrienne Kraus Latanishen and danced by Tessa Hom and Anastasia McKenzie for Baltimore Composers Forum’s Sound in Motion VI.
