I've just put down the first draft of a new work for Cygnus Ensemble entitled At Sixes and Sevens. It's a suite of five movements for two winds, two guitars, and two strings. It's a whirlwind of a piece, with much virituosity and subtle metric interplay. I am looking forward to editing and putting the final touches on it. I hope to hear it premiered by the ensemeble in the next year in NY.
After this project, I'm embarking on a set of meditations for baroque violin and archlute for Rebecca Harris and Richard Stone, of Tempesta di Mare. Each movement will be inspired by a quote from various mystical writings - Blake's Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Yeates' A Vision, Rumi, etc. I'm hoping to do a total 180 from the previous piece, working in a foggier, more suspended atmosphere. The piece will be on a concert with the Biber Biblical Sonatas and a work by WCU alum Dan Shapiro.
Farther out on the horizon is the exciting O Antiphons project with Choral Arts Philadelphia. My contribution will be a setting of O Sapientiae. This will be premiered near Christmas, 2015.
