Wood Fire (2016)

String Quartet. Approx. 2 minutes.

Wood Fire first contrasts, then ultimately combines, two simple ideas: a chord built by the accumulation of independent lines, and a pointillistic, folk-inspired texture. It was premiered by Friction Quartet on March 14, 2016 at Daniel Recital Hall, CSU Long Beach.



Piano, four hands. Approx. 2 minutes, 30 seconds.

Passages is an exploration of memory and its journey through the mind. It has a dampened and dream-like quality, along with driving momentum, as the central component of its aesthetic. The four hands version of this piece, which was composed in 2016, is a revision of an earlier work for a single pianist.

Passages was premiered by HOCKET on March 23, 2016 at Daniel Recital Hall, CSU Long Beach.
