Exhaling Space, for string quartet (2015)
Exhaling Space, for string quartet.
Written for the Carlos Chávez String Quartet
Following NASA’s release of images of Saturn’s moon Enceladus sending plumes into space, or “exhaling”, Exhaling Space explores various metaphors about the space where celestial bodies ‘breath’ and also about the intimate act of our own breathing. The piece itself inhales with intensity and vitality only to exhale, dissipating into space.
Less, for percussion quartet (2016)
Hypnotic, lyrical and rhythmically meticulous, Less for percussion quartet makes for a singular experience for performers and audiences. The combination of melodic dreamy textures, a scrupulous rhythmic spine, and a delicate sound world offers multiple angles and opportunities for subtle and expressive music-making.
