Commissioned by Basso Moderno Duo
Premiered at the Bernie Wohl Center, NYC, October 2008, by Basso Moderno Duo
A due is a made-up phrase, not quite English, not quite any other language. For me, the piece is a means of coming into harmonious relation with another. It could be a person, place, thing, feeling, idea…I think of the piece as a meditative sound painting.
It begins with an improvised, ad libitum crescendo-diminuendo, giving the players a chance to attune to one another and members of the audience. Through this, I hope to kindle the spirit of sensitive listening and response.
