icy, hollow, and warm (2015)

for flute, cello, and celeste.  duration: 6'30"

Program Notes:  "icyhollow and warm" is an exploration of color, timbre and mood.  All three words might describe either a physical state or an emotional state-- or perhaps both.  As a native of the woods of Wisconsin, I have been in situations which were physicallyicy and hollow, yet emotionally very warm.  As one who once tried to be a child actor in Los Angeles, I have experienced a culture which was icy and hollow, though physically warm. Sometimes the physical and emotional worlds are juxtaposed. There can be a beauty in that.
