Description

A video excerpt combining a recording and the score of the piece "gradualmente, el hermoso universo" performed and premiered by the Central Michigan University's New Music Ensemble in the Fall of 2013. The graphic score asks the performers to use color, shape, size, and texture to inform improvisations based on the corresponding colored pitches in the staff. This is the first work selected to be performed after a eight-year hiatus from composing. Performers: Kelly Vander Molen, violin; Evan Harris, tenor sax; Jenna Veldboom, alto sax; Melissa Bialecki, cello; Nathan Brown, trombone; Kosta Kapellas, double bass; Kenny Yagiela, marimba; Bryce Craig, mallets; Frank Nawrot, acoustic guitar
