I’m thrilled to share the work’s premiere as it was recorded on June 26 at Boston GuitarFest.
As we explore further developing this project, Davide and I have discovered that the piece really benefits from muting the visual stimuli of the performance act, as its vehement gestures often run contrary to the delicate sounds produced. Therefore we have decided not to include the video here, and to experiment in the future with performances in near-darkness.
For those who missed the works premiere, there will be another performance at the New England Conservatory this winter, preceded by a presentation by Davide and myself on the creative process and the music that resulted. Dates soon to be announced.
Now there is still the issue of finding a name for this beast…
