LIGHT YEARS (2018) for orchestra
LIGHT YEARS (2019)
3/3/3/2 - 4/3/3/1 - timp./3 perc./piano/ harp/strings
Tight rhythmic canons, asymmetric rhythms and meters, and contrasting incisive and lyrical gestures generate much of the music in Light Years, a lively, extended overture for large orchestra. Rather than a literal musical soundscape of the distance light travels in one year (about 5.88 trillion miles), this piece is more of a reflection on the events and emotions experienced over the fleeting passage of time.
