for orchestra


  • Instrumentation: orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

Description
There are layers of history within any institution, and the point of departure for my piece was the music I have written for my colleagues at Rice University over the last twenty years. The idea of layers of history also conjured the various epochs and layers within the earth’s crust and the sometimes slow, sometimes violent changes that take place over time. These layers are represented musically by various motives in the piece that are stacked upon each other towards the end of the work. This is an idea I used in a previous work, Strata, and a third piece will be added based on the same premise. Pierre Jalbert
