quasi una taciturnĂ 

horn and voice

for Jena Gardner

Performances:

  • Jena Gardner, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, 6/5/2016
  • Jena Gardner, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, 2/16/2016

Program Note:

quasi una taciturnĂ  was written in close collaboration with the amazing Jena Gardner. The work quietly explores the otherworldly sounds of horn multiphonics (singing while playing). The title, "almost a taciturnity," refers to the notion of a perceptual silence that Renaissance theorists invoked to allow certain kinds of dissonances. Many thanks to Jena for her amazing performances.
