Symmetrichorale (5/29/2013 performance, 2012 revision)

The documentation from the concert of my music that happened in May is finally starting to trickle in!
This short piece is a revision of a violin duo originally commissioned by Machine Project (LA) for the Hammer Museum of Art (UCLA). Its animating idea and form are owed to my composition studies with Alvin Lucier at Wesleyan between 2004 and 2008. Alvin advocated the transparent “one idea piece,” which I think pretty well characterizes this piece and its dogged exploration of symmetry around the droning open ‘A’ string.
